Melvin I ran across that census and thought that it was granddad. His birthday fell after the June census for 1900. His birthday was in August. I thought he was working for George Patton at the time before his marriage. He was married in July of 1900. I thought that it was another tie to the Pattons as George was his uncle. If their birthday fell before the census in June they were 21, and for the June census John was 20. He turned 21 in August so he was born in 1977.
