Hinthorn, Floyd E.

Problem: Was the date of birth: 1 Jul 1893 or 7 Jul 1892/1893? Apparently the tombstone lists 1892. SSDI lists, 1 Jul 1893.

CONFLICT: Cemetery sheet at The Fort lists the date of birth as 7 Jul 1893. Others have read the date as 1 Jul 1893. 1 Jul 1893 in the SSDI.

PARENTS: Jackson Hinthorn and Fannie E. Messer

RELATIONSHIP: Floyd Hinthorn was the twin of Lloyd Hinthorn.

MARRIAGE-CONFLICT: Was the marriage to Bessie Harmeson in 1910 as listed in the obituary of Floyd Hinthorn or 4 Dec 1914 as listed elsewhere?

MARRIAGE: 1913, Book N, p. 130

Census: 1920, in Lawndale Twp., McLean Co., IL, #22/23, 5 Jan 1920
Floyd Hinthorn, 25; Bessy, 29
