Notes:  *Birth year conflict!  Paul himself reported his birth year to be "1890" when he completed his official World War I Draft Registration Card in 1917.  He also reported his age to be 27 at that time.  Thus there is a high probability that his true birthdate was 13 Nov 1890.

In 1905 Paul at age 15 was sent to the Woodworth place (in Sonoma County, California) with a team of horses and supplies to last him for a week at a time.  He plowed the fields to prepare them for spring planting.  Paul worked long hours alone and slept in the fields with the horses.  During planting Paul missed school for weeks at a time, but his efforts helped to build the family holdings at Woodworth.

In 1917 Paul at age 27 was described as tall and slender with brown eyes and black hair.  He was then married, had one child, and was living in Sebastopol, California.

In 1930 Paul listed himself as a dairyman working on a rented diary farm.

Paul and his wife Edna moved to Drain, Oregon, in 1944 or 1945.
