Looking for help with my brick wall grandfather.

+4 votes
My grandfather was [[Anderson-39080|Charles Hubert Anderson]] born in Merrill, Lincoln, Wisconsin 1901 died in Seattle, King, Washington 1968.  I don't know a lot more than that.

I have added extensive research notes on what the family thinks it knows and what has been looked at.  I also have several DNA matches obviously through him but have not been able to make a connection.  Three of my 1st cousins and several 3rd cousins have been tested which isolates dozens of matches that could only go through him.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated as my uncle worked this search for about 40 years before his death and I have spent considerable time on it over the last 10 years.

Sergeant, US Army, enlisted October 16 1922
City directory, Seattle, 1929 , listed as Chash Anderson, wife Edna, address 3830 Woodlawn.
grandmothers name? or name of any siblings of him? name of a child of theirs?
The 1910 census for Ernest and Johanna does NOT list a Charles or Hubert among the children
1910 census Milwaukee, a son Charles, born 1901 in New Jersey in the household of Helmer Carl Anderson and wife Anna, both immigrants from Norway.

Merrill ,Lincoln,Wisconsin has online birth records,but is a pay site.
I don't know if your leads will prove fruitful, but the effort you've shown is highly commendable. I hope that if I should run into an American question there is someone like yourself around to help. Well done.
Eddie King: Yes, thank you, that is him.  After marriage to Edna in 1926 I have everything.  It is his parents I am looking for.  I will look into the Milwaukee and Cottonwood Charles.

Wayne Morgan: Thank you for the tip.  I have to check though my uncles papers.  I am pretty sure we have something from Merrill stating they had no record.

haha, I see the [[]] thing doesn't work in the forum.
