Comment: Source includes date (Nov/1881), age (18), and location (Minnesota). Using his age and the official census date of 1 June 1900 gives a birth date range from 2 June 1881 to 1 June 1882, which encompasses the given date. Note that the value of 18 appears to be a correction, replacing a value of 19. The presence of numerous such corrections on the page suggest an enumerator error.
