Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Date: This database uses 31 August 1866. Using his age (5) on the official 1870 census date of 1 June 1870 gives a birth date range from 2 June 1864 to 1 June 1865. [census-us-1870-ps-ia-cedar-springdale-23]

SPELLING

Given Name: This database uses Emmor. The 1870 U.S. Census shows Emer, likely just an uncaught typographical error. [census-us-1870-ps-ia-cedar-springdale-23]

Given Name: This database uses Emmor. In A Memorial and Biographical Record of Iowa he is identified as "Emma B" and is likely just an uncaught typographical error. [book-memorial-record-of-iowa-v1-1896]

FOLLOWUP

Emmor may have been born in West Branch, Cedar County, Iowa. The source didn't specify the county. However, most of West Branch is in Cedar County, with the exception of a small neighborhood in Johnson County that appears to be a very recent development. [research-conversation-with-<private>-2009]

A registry entry of his marriage to Nellie McConnell includes a marriage date of 5 May 1887, occuring in the bride's home in Highland Township, Guthrie County, Iowa. His father is identified as Geo G.[conflict] Maris and his mother as Mary Smith (maiden name). The marriage occured on 5 May 1887 and was recorded on 12 May. He was 21 at the time, giving a birth date range of 6 May 1865 to 5 May 1866, which conflicts with his known birth date. He was born in Springdale, Cedar County, Iowa. (from Iowa, Marriage Records, 1880-1940, database with images on Ancestry.com)

Emmor had been a bank cashier in Wessington Springs, South Dakota and for five years a cashier at the Iowa State Treasury at Des Moines, Iowa. [obituary-emmor-maris-1945]

In 1896, Emmor may have been a bookkeeper in the Iowa State Treasurer's office.
