The buck pretty much stops here.  He came with his family from England & after they got here his parents & any sibs he had all died leaving him an orphan by,  I believe his granddaughter said, age 13.  After he became an orphan he went from farm to farm looking for work to support himself with.  His future wife’s father had died due to the flu epidemic.  His widow needed help so she took in her future son-in-law.  Eventually her daughter & boarder married.  They had a couple of kids then took at least her mother if not her sibs with them to Oklahoma where they had the rest of their kids.  Their 2nd oldest son was killed in WWII.
