Notes: He listts his next of kin as his mother. I had belived that his mother and father had seperated but no records. This would indicate that he considered his mother, not his father as his nearest kin, but his father was still alive, he died in 1951. His mother was named Emma (not Emer, but I did not have the middle name Estelle, and still do not know her maiden name. They are not listed in the befor 1900 marriages book .
