Additional Information

John Alexis French:

Notes:

per 1910 census John is a manager for an elevator. The family is living on Oxford St. His name is "Alexis J."

Per WWI draft card - John is a grain buyer for the Farmer's Elevator Co. in Edison, NE. He is slender, of med. height, with black eyes and hair. (The writing on this was awful. This is my best guess.)

1920 Census - his name is listed J. A.

1930 Census John is still managing the grain elevator. His home is worth $2500 and there is no mortgage. They have a 10 yr old granddaughter living with them. Last name Harlan, 1st name looks like "Halsn"

Notes:

On the 1880 census, Kate is called Ralie.

1910 Census gives initial "F"

1920 census - They have a 10 yr old granddaughter living with them. Last name Harlan, 1st name looks like "Halsn"

(03) Bell French:

Notes:

On 1920 census name is "Mae Bell"

(04) Avery A. French:

Notes:


On the 1920 census Avery's name is illegible. It looks like it starts with "B"
