From the personal albums of Marlene Derbridge
Found on familysearch.org, Nov 2014
According to these documents the following dates apply:
BIRTH: 13 Mar 1897- Herford, Westfallen, Germany*
DEATH: 22 Feb 1897- Taylorsville, Salt Lake, Utah
He was 89 years old when he died.
*Particular birth area is derrived from info found on his familysearch.org profile. I have yet to obtain exacting proof of that location... Also, his marriage record states his birth year was 1899, but all other records indicate 1897 as correct.
