     He was a grocer. The 1910 census, when he was age 38, shows him as retired with his own income, same as his father. Other errors in the record (he is shown as being married 38 years when he was only 38 years old) suggest this may have been errors in copying data to the official forms.21,22 In 1920 he was shown as a wholesale green grocer. By 1930 he was a real estate agent and he was retired by 1940.23,24,25,26
