Can anybody find him in the 1920 or 1930 census?

Hello all,

hope you are all doing well this Sunday! This is going to be a slightly weird request only because Familysearch does not seem to be working on my laptop much these days. I can access it on my phone and tablet but neither will let me copy the citations... anyway, I have been unable to find the above Frank Kopp and his family in the 1920 or 1930 census and I have found his death certificate unfortunately, I cannot copy and paste it here now. The thing I am really trying to figure out is whether or not this is really the right son of my great-great grandpa, Frank Kopp b, 1835.

This is what I can remember:

He was born around 1870 in Ohio (June 15, 1867 according to the March 29, 1935 death record) and can be seen with the family in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1870 and 1880 US Census records. The next record I can officially find of him is the 1910 US census listed as Frank Kupp with wife Julia and children, Christina, Emma and Frank. The most important part is the fact that he lived at 8210 Golden Ave when he died which was young August Hruska's (his likely brother-in-law) home in 1920. I just want some more confirmation before confirming everything here.

 

Thank you,

Mike

I've also been having problems for about 5 days getting Family Search to behave normal.  Upon an initial request a statement appears that an unsupported character has been entered and after hitting the back arrow it works.  Then when you want to look for an additional record or go onto the next page of results you have to start all over. Something "ain't" right!

Good writing . I was fascinated by the information - Does someone know where my business could possibly locate a sample DA 31 example to edit ?

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your help here but if you look at the profile for Frank you can see that his parents are Frank Kopp and Catherine Liesy who were both born in Bohemia. So these records are of different Kopps.
