Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

John's surname is not clear. It is Marks in the 1892 New York Census, but this is after Michael married Lottie. Since John was born about 5 years before the marriage, his father was likely Lottie's first husband, with the surname Schmetgall.

John's birth date is before the marriage date of Mikel and Lottie Marks, his parents in 1892. He is likely the son of Lottie and her first husband. [census-us-newyork-1892-kings-17-1-2]

There was a John Marks, b. abt 1878 in Germany, enlisted in the U.S. Army on 3 Oct 1911. He may have been honorably discharged 2 Oct 1914.
