Re: James Blanding - 1910 census
- Tom ...
I checked the 1910 census again. The James Blanding in Gardiner is a
49-year-old widower whose parents were born in Missouri and
Pennsylvania. No others in his household.
Our James C. Blanding is listed in the Jardine school District, Park
County, and by 1910 was about 62 years old. His wife Mary C. is also
listed, with years of marriage shown as 15. Certainly, if James and
mary were married in the area, an 1894 or 1895 newspaper might yield a
clue. I think the earliest that DB went to Yellowstone was the summer
of 1909, about age 15.
