Re: 1930 census - invented people #usa #general #records


PS: I forgot to note that Hyman Pat/Patt/Pate was the only one of his siblings in 1910 who was male (and who would therefore die with the family name of "Pate" -- which seems to have been adopted by his parents and siblings (those not married) by 1920) ; it seems that his being the only man among his siblings led to his parents and siblings adopting "Pate" with a final "e".

(He died in the 1950s before I was born; I never met him.)
