Also: It's going to be challenging to find his parents and family based on Census records. He was born in 1881, which is after the 1880 US Census. The 1890 US Census was destroyed in a fire. If he left home at the age of 14, that places it in 1895. That means wherever he was in 1900, it was not with his parents. You'll probably need to find birth records and start there.
