Thanks for the reply. Since our Max FERCHE (also shown erroneously as FEICHE and PERCHE) in death announcement and at cemetery office) died in 1903 he would not be the same as the one you found on 1920 census. The Max you located would have been born when our Max was about age 2 so suspect this is the wrong link to pursue. Suspect the info on the 1900 Census I found must be the wrong person for our line, which puts me now at even greater "dead end"! / The Max I'm researching was great uncle to my husband. / THANKS AGAIN!
