FOLLOWUP

The birth date for Leopold Marks is higly variable in the sources used for this record. These differences imply that they are for different Leo Marks (I think this is unlikely, due to the similarities) or that Leo didn't want anyone to know his true birth date, or that Leo didn't know his true birth date. Based on the potential reasons, this database uses his birthdate from the 1900 U.S. Census, when he was 8. This date would have been provided by his parents, who presumably knew it.

Leo and Clara probably married 6 Oct 1915 in Clay County, Minnesota. (Certificate 000K-398)

Leo and Clara moved moved to Paradise, Butte County, California, before the mid-1960s. Leo probably died there in Nov 1983. [research-social-security-death-index]

The California Death Index gives a birth date of 15 Nov 1890 in New York, and a death date of 6 Nov 1983. It identifies in Butte County, California. It also provides a reasonable approximation of his mother's birth surname, Schmidtgall.
