Do I have the correct 1910 and 1920 census for Bernard J. Lackamp Sr.? [closed]

+4 votes
Because his 1930 census says his parents were born in Missouri.

But the 1910 and 1920 says Kansas and his last name is spelled Lohkamp.

I just want to make sure I have the correct census and person.

It looks like the same person.

It's not unusual for ages to be off by several years.  It's also not unusual to have the parents birthplaces incorrect.  If his wife is the one who answered the questions, she might have assumed since BJ was from Missouri, then his parents were also.  That just one possible scenario so I think more weight should be given to the residences and family group in the census.
