  • Notes 
    • (Research):info taken from the Robertson (emory.edu) website. can't find him in SSDI.

      Found Miles C. McKercher in Porland, Multnomah, OR in the 1920 census married to Helen J., both are 29. Birth places match for Miles.

      Found in the 1930 census in Beaverton Dist 4, Washington, Oregon. They were both 23 when married. Helen was born in Sweden.

      Found Miles WWI Draft card at Ancestry. Shows birth in Mason City (close enough). He was a railroad Telegrapher. Shows he has a wife and son. Dated 5 Jun 1917.
      Looks like he was in San Francisco in 1945. He is listed in the directory. Maybe that is why he is not in the 1940 census with Helma and George.
