Something else that has been very confusing is that I have been finding names on the census, with the same street addresses that were given in the military records, however the house number has been different.
This has happened on quite a few records, so I am then unsure as to whether it is a coincidence or a admin error by either the military or the census records.
An example of this is.
In my Grandfathers Military Records, there is a document that names his brother Claude Willard Smith as living at
656 Kerr Street, Columbus, Ohio on the 9th January 1942.
In the 1940 Census there is a record of a Claude Smith living at rear 661 Kerr Street.
Coincidence or admin error?
Like I said, this has happened with almost all of the records and addresses that were supplied in the military records for several of his family residences. the street will match but not the house numbers
