Notes

  • In 1900, Louis and his older brother David are still single and livingwith their widowed mother in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  David, whosebirthday we know from a family genealogy as 2 November 1867, isreported as born in  September 1867.  Louis' census birthday of August1883 also differs from that reported by one family genealogy 12December 1882.  Another genealogy, however, reports Louis' birth asonly the year 1884.

    Louis is reported as Louis S rather than Louis C.  Also his age is alittle uncertain.  The number looks somewhat like 40, which is howAncestry.com interprets it.  But the zero is not an open circle, andhas curves very much like a quickly-written 8.  His birthday reportedfrom family genealogies is 12 December 1882.  This would match an ageof almost 48 at census time in 1930.  If actually born in December1882, he would only have had his 47th birthday 4 months before theApril 1930 census.

    The memorial on Find a Grave fills in details.
