Further Research Required

Source 00849 is inconsistent on the birthday indicating both the 30 and the 31st of May. Futhermore, source 01766, also from the same informant as source 00849, indicates May 30. Complicating the matter even more is the fact that the most official source, his death certificate (01767), indicates that he was born May 30 1893; however, it also notes that his age at last birthday was 90, which would support 1894! In addition, source 00849 is not consistent in the marriage date of Charles and his first wife Alta, it indicates both the 17 and the 19th, while source 00838:40 clearly states the 19th. Somewhere, probably in either source 00838 or source 00849, this writer read that Estella Linn thought his second wife may have gone by the name Babe. Also, source 01766 indicates that the family moved to Rogesrs Mesa in 1903 while source 01763 lists the year as 1904. [When the correct year is determined, correct Andrew and Mary Linn's data as well.] It should be noted that his obituary, source 01766, indicates burial on the 17th while other source 00849 indicates the 18th. Lastly, his death certificate (01767) indicates that he had lived in Arizona 45 years at the time of his death with his previous statew of residence being Colorado while is obituary (01766) notes that he resided in Phoenix the last 40 years of his life and that he lived in Orange California prior to his move to Arizona. Therefore, when did he come to the state of Arizona and where did he reside in Arizona before he moved to Phoenix? It is likely that the death certificate is incorrect about the previous state of residence, but this should also be examined further.
