Thank you. There are even more bits and pieces in your message, which help me to piece together my picture. I have felt as though I was handed a box, containing parts of many jigsaw puzzles. Now that I can take out those segments, which should not be there, it's much clearer.
The only thing I can say, about the 1952 death record, is one of the few, tiny bits pried from my father. He told me that information had been supplied at the time, to officials, by Kay. We can only guess why it's off. I have seen a photo of AJ with me on his lap as a baby. My memory of that portrayed scene, was that he looked older. So perhaps 1875 explains why.
One remaining mystery, is unraveling the marriage situation for AJ. I know he was married twice. But there seem to be a couple of hints in this all, there may have been a third to the total. Being an amateur at searching on the web, I have yet to figure out how, or where to attempt a search for such an unknown.
