when was the census v. the birth record maybe they moved around
by Melissa Bushway G2G2 (2.3k points)
the place of birth for Joel's parents changes.

1885 census: father b. Illinois; mother b. Iowa

1900 census both parents b. Ohio

1930 census both parents b. England

Death Record: father b. U.S., mother b. unknown

I've reason to believe Joel Bales-208 may have been involved in a shooting between 1885 and 1900 causing his relocation to Illinois from Nebraska which is when his parents birth place began to change. Family records show birth places matching the 1885 Nebraska Census.
