Quite the mystery indeed. I will do some background on the family you mention and see where that leads. No he was not in the military, in fact it seems he was quit the vagabond. He had been in trouble several times for petty things such as vagrancy. It was mentioned that when he left his children and wife he went to Washington, and ultimately ended up in California. I have ran a background check through been verified, again nothing. You are most helpful, and I Thank You.
