I would check the 1900 census, that one census record asks for month and year of birth, instead of the usual age at time of census. Plus, other good information on there, too. Once you have month and year of his birth, plus location of his birth, Soc Sec might be able to track down his applicationn for a Soc Sec card, and you can obtain a copy of that. It should show the names of his parents, where he resided at the time of application and other data, too.

Was your mother born in El Paso? I would send for the divorce records of your grandparents. You never know what information might show up in that record. My gr grdparents were divorced in 1903 in NM and I sent for their divorce papers.

My gr grdfather gave his deposition and had witnesses testify for him, too. One was a nephew who left TX and went to NM with my gr grdfthr and his brothers. Gr grdmthr never gave her depositon, but she left him and three very young children, so it's not surprising she didn't want to do any testifying.

You might look in El Paso for a marriage record, too. You might get a correct spelling of maiden name for Cornelia. You could also apply for a copy of her Soc Sec application, too. Another source of correct spelling of her maiden name.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
