Today in Family History - 06 Oct

My great-grandfather Roy Jacob Anders, Sr. was born on this day in 1898 in Huntsville, Walker, Texas [1, 2, 3, 4].

Note: Roy's birth place is specified as Huntsville, Walker, Texas on his birth certificate and Montgomery County, Texas on his death certificate. Based on Walker County tax records from 1891 through 1900, Roy's parents were living in Walker County. Therefore, Huntsville is assumed to be the correct birth place.
