Appears on 1900 Campbell County, TN as age 2 in household of Susan Chapman, widowed mother of 2 with 1 living as her grandson. The only other household member is Addie Bell Chapman, Susan's daughter. By 1910 we find Carl listed in the household of George W. Norman and wife Addie Bell Chapman, who married in Dec 1900. Carl's mother, Hettie was Addie's sister and George's first wife having apparently died prior to 1900 and George married Hettie's sister Addie, making his Aunt his new step mother.
Buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, LaFollette, Campbell County, Tennessee. Year of birth on marker is 1893, however, census indicate he was much younger, age 2 in 1900 and 15 in 1910. His parents were married in April 1896, therefore the census age of 2 in 1900 seems to be the more accurate. He may have lied about his age/year of birth to enter the miliary and propagated the falsehood throughout life as did many others who fought in WWI.
