MYSTERY! Elmer Besenger

My great great grandfather Elmer Louis Besenger (Bessenger; Bessinger) never revealed where he originated. We believe he may have been an undocumented alien from Austria-Hungary. We believe he lied about his birthplace and birth year. He shows up in the 1900 census in Deloge and Elvins, Missouri area. If anyone has any information about either him or his son James (Jim) Elmer Bessenger my family would be soooo grateful. It's sad when you can't even trace your history back two generations. I know that at least one of them worked at the mines.
