He died in Portsmouth, VA. His parents were born in Pleasant Grove and Butts Road area of VA, and he was born in Hertford, NC. But between 1890 and 1900, he moved back to VA. According to the death record from the funeral home, when he died in 1904, he had been a resident of the city or county, for 5 years. His older sister was living in the Washington District of Norfolk Co in 1900. His younger sister was living in Portsmouth in 1900. I have to assume, he was either in Portsmouth or Norfolk Co. in 1900, but I have manually searched most of the ED's and checked the soundex and he is not listed. I can only assume his name is grossly misspelled or he was just not enumerated at all.
