The family living together in 1900 was his two sisters: Charlotte and Capitola, his mother and step-father and himself in Van Duzen Township, Humboldt County, California. His older siblings were Gaines 16, who lived nearby, and two older brothers Lewis Jefferson (b.1875) and Albert A (b.1878) who live away.
