And in 1920 he isn't listed in their home. A male child named "Lorin", age 1 7/12 months is listen in their household as their Grandson. He isn't with his purported Mother, Zella LuDean (Keel) Wimmer. She is found in the 1920 census, newly married, living with her Husband, Walter Wimmer.

I'm guessing that Zella had Bacil out of wedlock (father could be unknown or Walter Wimmer). Maybe his grandparents raised him?

Looks like it's one of those - teenage daughter has a baby raised by her parents as theirs.

The obit sticks with the line for the parents, but comes clean by naming the Wimmer girls as half-sisters.  Which also says Mr Wimmer wasn't Bacil's dad.

Yep. Looks that way! Thank you, very very very much!

  I don't know about Utah birth records but you may have to order a birth certificate to be sure.
