legend) sometime between 1900-1920. In 1900 NE census he is 8 years old & can read/write. Couldn't find him in 1910
censuses, but he was living with his father in 1920 in Guthrie, OK and is 28 yr. old & could NOT read or write. It is
unknown at this time what happened to him after his father's death in 1936).
