Note:

  • Albert’s parents were reported to be born in Whitover. I need to figure out if that will help narrow down where Johann Starkey and Emilie Kuehl (his parents) were born!
  • The census states they own their farm, with a mortgage. Look for records to support this.
  • Albert and Mary do not speak English in 1920, however, the 1930 census states that they do. Makes me wonder if they learned English during that timeframe… yes this is how random my mind works haha.

To Do Next: Add the 1920 Census information to the timeline and locate Albert & Mary Starkey Family in the 1910 U. S. Federal Census.
