Hi Annie, thanks so much for your reply. I have seen the data you sent previously but was not certain it was my Wm. Orlando Bearse because I am uncertain of his "real" date of birth.

The 1900 federal census shows his age as 38 which makes birth year abt 1861.

But the 1910 federal census shows his age as 53 which makes birth year abt 1857.

Worse, the Early Records, Butte and Tehama Counties, California, shows his year of birth was 1856.

If in fact he was born after 1860, then what you sent makes sense. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might further investigate his actual date of birth?

Thanks again,
Linda Bearse-Netto
