  • In the 1910 the Benjamin is reported as being 11 years old, yet hedoes not appear in the 1900 census.  But then in 1920, he is only 18,making his birthday in about 1891.  But this is the year that the sonRichard Albert was born.  In 1930, Ben is reported to be 26 years old,which would mean he was only 6 in 1910, and thus born in about 1904.They weren't very focused on dates and ages back then.
