    --  Venita Muczynski, genealogy comment to Orville Boyd Jenkins onAncestry.com, 29 Dec 2012

    The 1910 census reports an age requiring a birth date almost a yearlater than that reported by Venita and other family sources.

    1910 Federal Census, Seminole County, Oklahoma, 25 April, KonawaTownship, District 184, page 9B, Hse/Fam #171
    Gooch, Jesse A Head M W 51 Marriage 3 Married 4 years MS US MS FarmerRents
    Gooch, Francis O Wife F W 27 Marriage 1 Married 4 years 2 children/1living TX GA TX
    Gooch, Fredrick M W 1yr1mo Single OK MS TX [born abt March 1909]

    Other family sources also report the 1908 birth date.  It seems oddthat his parents would have reported him a year younger than he was.It could be enumerator error entry.
