    The 1910 census, taken in April, reports Marvel as 38 years old.  Hisbirth date is in June, thus this tells us his birth year was 1871,matching the year date reported on his gravestone.  His age of 8reported in the 1880 census, with census date 1 June, matches 1871,indicating his birth date for the census year had not yet occurred. Ifhe had been born on 23 June 1872, his age on June 1 would have beenonly 7 years.  In this date the census dates are consistent with thedate of birth reported on the gravestone.

    Bill Green also shared some reflections on a visit to Sorento andSunnyside Cemetery.

    "Spent this last week in HIghland, Sorento and Pocahontas IL withwife's (Betty) brother, Bob.  He never left the area.  Also visitedthe Sunnyside Cemetery at the outskirts of Sorento.  Sunnyside hasmany, many of my Green relatives, including Marvel Linzy Green and hiswife (my dad's parents.)  The grave sights include so, so many of mymother's Jestes relatives.  Took some pictures of grave sights andwill return to get even more.  On the way out of Sorento, passed 3older people sitting around a wood fire in their yard.  Told Betty tostop and back up -- and I joined the 3.  They did remember some of myfamily, and the older person remembered Betty's dad and mother fromPocahontas.  Betty came out with the older lady's dad's name and thatdid shock her. Betty delivered daily papers to him."
