Very interesting. Now you've given me another mystery to solve. Charles' father is given as Clifford A. Napper. My great grandfather by that name was single in 1870 and married my great grandmother in 1893, but so far I have nothing on him in between. He shows up (on in every other Census but 1880, and of course, 1890 Census was lost. Could I have missed a whole other family?? I'll have to start digging! There are so many Nappers, this could perhaps be a different one, but with 23 missing years, I have to look further at this one. Gotta love this stuff!!
