Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Death Location: This database uses Placerville, California. An interview with his sister indicates he died in Fremont, California. [interview-helen-oram-2009]

FOLLOWUP

Although records show George as working in a delicatessen in April of 1940, and for 26 years total, his and Meryle's marriage certificate show him working as an airplane parts machinist. Are some of these records incorrect, even though they fit in on several different details? Did he work two different jobs? Was the machinist job in response to the growing thread in Europe and Asia? (The U.S. would not enter WWII until almost 13 months after their wedding.) [marriage-johnson-marshall-1940]
