The 1920 census shows a C. E. Hollingsworth in Warden, Grant Co.,
Washington, age 36, born in Kansas. He is married and has two young
daughters. He may not be your Charles though, because the parents'
birthplaces don't match the Jewell Co. census entries for 1900 and 1910, but
then they don't agree with each other either!
Charles left for "the Dakotas" 1915-16. In response to the only letter to
his sister (indicating he was despondent) the family contacted the
postmaster (letter's postmark), He knew no one in the area by the name of
Charles E. Hollingsworth and there had been no death's reported in the area.
The family grieved for him the rest of their lives.
My question is, is there any source of information for Quakers in that time
period that I may have overlooked?
If he married and left a family I would like to make contact.
Am I stuck with assuming he took his own life, went to Alaska, joined the
army, died without family, OR simply changed his name.
This week I used the new genealogy search sight, Mocavo.com but found only
the queries I had placed on the internet in the past.
