Arthur J Knott on the 1930 census is widowed, and it states he immigrated in 1914 - wonder if that is when he arrived in Canada??

Just came across this, I have a feeling Arthur John may have been double counted in the US 1930:

1930 United States Federal Census

Name: Arthur J Knott
Gender: Male
Birth Year: abt 1887
Birthplace: England
Race: White
Home in 1930: Analy, Sonoma, California
Map of Home: View Map
Marital Status: Divorced <<<<
Immigration Year: 1915
Relation to Head of House: Lodger
Father's Birthplace: England
Mother's Birthplace: England

Occupation: Farm Labourer

Household Members:
Name Age
Catharine M Paulsen 69
Marie C Paulsen 46
Anna Paulsen 44
Carl P Paulsen 42
Arthur J Knott 43 - Lodger

The Paulsens' all born Germany. Street address looks like Volkinta Road.

The occupation is the same as the other record, but that one says he is widowed - I'm wondering if they said that to avoid embarrassment.

I think this is his daughter Winifred in 1930:

No idea how she fetched up with the Mullens, each one of them seems to have been born in a different state of the US.

The record Flip posted 15 Sep 2013 09:34 looks to be the 1920 census for Arthur & Elizabeth. I notice on that record that Henry Bracken is listed as being the son of the household. No age is given for him but he's old enough to have an occupation (Linen Cutter). He was born California, both parent's listed as from New York.

Was he adopted in the same way Lucy and Herbert adopted John White?

Did you look at the image MC? The next family listed are called Wallace, including Winifred, who's age fits and she states she is English/Canada - could just be a coincidence though.

He's clearly with the other household, but I wonder if Winifred gave the details if they were not at home when the census man called?
