      • 1900 census shows his birth as Nov 1860 MI, father born NY, mother born Michigan. Married 14 yrs 5 children 4 living.
      • 1910 census shows them in Langdon, 49, mother born Michigan, married 24 yrs 7 children, 5 living.
      • 1920 census shows the family still in Langdon. Also living with them is a nephew John Powers age 14 born Missouri father born Michigan.
      • According to a postcard that Norman's wife, Ida, sent home to her daughter Lucy in 1908, they were visiting family in Bronson, Branch Co., Michigan. Who were they visiting? This shows that Norman still had family back in Michigan.
      • From "Hutchinson News-Herald" 12 November 1949:
