Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

"A Spear Family History" give Asa's birth date/place as 14 Oct 1900, in Lynch, Boyd County, Nebraska.

Asa's obituary (Mountain Democrat-Times, Placerville, CA, 29 Dec 1971) is also in alignment with the 1900/1901 date, as it give his age as 71. However, it gives a birth location of "Leach", Nebraska -- probably a misspelling as there is no Leach, Nebraska.

However, these all disagree with the official state record of his marriage, which gives his age as 29 in 1925. At this point, I'm assuming the 1910 U.S. Census is correct.
