Paul Mertin Best was born 3 Sep 1890 in Pierce County, North Dakota to Charles and Cora M. He had six known siblings; Forrest M, Ruby C, Bertha S, Ronald C, Louise and Rose. His father Charles was a farmer here in Kootenai Co, Idaho.
Paul had a few occupations himself. At the age of 19 he was a Steamboat Engineer in Coeurd'Alene, ID (1910 census). I would love to know more about that. At age 29 he was an engineer in a Wood Yard in Skagit, WA (1920 census) where his children were born. About ten years later he was a truck driver for a wood company (from 1930 census. Hard to read, but I'm sure that's what is says) in Vancouver, WA............
