Other facts


Birth of daughter Living BISSWANGER


  • In the 1910 census the age of Joseph is given as 1 year old.  Thecensus was in May that year, so if the age is correct, he had hisfirst birthday sometime before May 1910.  This means he was born nolater than the month of July 1909.

    In 1920, he is listed as Joie and his age is 10 for the Januarycensus.  If, again, this age is technically correct, he has not yethad his 10th birthday.  So his 11th birthday, 10 years after he was 1year old, will be some time in January or later.  But from the 1910census we know his birthday will occur before 1 May.  Thus I amreporting his birthday as between January and May 1909.  This alsomatches his age reported as 21 in the 1930 census.
