He was a bartender, married into a German immigrant family, and there are no ' family stories' related to where he was from. His son, another Edward H., was married in OH, and the earlier marriage records I have found had no birth location on the groom. Another record set, and later censuses, say he was b OH.<br> |+|

If the original records that were indexed also included birthplace info for the parents of the groom/bride, then it is possible that the transcriber put the father' s birthplace in the spot for the groom' s (of the identical name) birthplace. If birthplaces were only noted on the original records for the bride and groom, then I'm really confused. |+|
