Conklin, 34, stone mason, he and his parents b VT, with wife Mina, housekeeping, b OH, her father b MA, her mother b VT,with son Reuben, 2, b MI, his father b VT, his mother b OH.1882-1887, 1890, 1895-1909The name Charles E. Conklin appears in the Boston City Directories, showing that from 1882-1884 he boarded at 2 BowditchCourt, from 1885-1896 he boarded or roomed at 59 Pynchon, from 1897-1901 he roomed at 1241 Columbus Avenue, and in 1902-1909 a Charles Conklin had a house at Squantum.When I first found these listings I thought they were for the Charles E. Conklin described in this record (my great grandfather), butI later found that his brother Edward D. Conklin had a son whom he named Charles E. (perhaps after his brother). Descendants of Edward's son Charles report that he lived in Squantum at one time.The occupation of the Charles E. Conklin who lived in the Boston area was shown as car driver or hack driver until 1890. Startingin 1895 he was shown as having a stable, first at 59 Pynchon, and later at 1233 Columbus Avenue, Roxbury. The Pynchon Streetaddress was the location of the stable of Edward D. Conklin, who died in 1894.Probably all these mentions of Charles E. Conklin refer to Edward's son, but we have no proof that none refers to the Charles whowent to Michigan. It's not impossible that the Michigan Charles sometimes traveled to Boston to work with his brother, perhapsbecause of the shortage of employment opportunities in Allegan County.1900 Census, Otsego, Allegan, MI, dwelling 204, family 208Charles Conklin, husband, b Apr 1847, 53, married 32 years, b VT, his parents' birthplaces unknown, mason, unemployed 4months, in household of Mina Conklin, b Apr 1849, 51, married 32 years, has had 3 children, 2 now living, b OH, her father b MA,her mother b VT, with son Rubin, b May 1878, 22, single, b MI, his father b VT, his mother b OH, back tender, paper mill, nounemployment, daughter Bell, b Aug 1880, 19, single, b MI, her father b VT, her mother b OH, dressmaker, no unemployment, withboarder Harry Lince, b Aug 1877, 22, single, b MI, parents' birthplaces unknown, laborer, chair factory, no unemployment.

2(We don't know why Mina was enumerated as the head of the household, because in 1900 the husband was usually considered headof the household when both were present. Perhaps it was a slip up or a misunderstanding by the census enumerator, or perhaps it wasbecause Charles was living somewhere else at that time.)11 April 1906Charles H. McBride and Emily L. McBride his wife, of the City of Holland, Ottawa County, Michigan, sell the south half of lots 70and 71 on Franklin Street in the Village of Otsego, Allegan County, MI, to Charles Conklin and Mina Conklin, jointly and severally ashusband and wife, of the Village of Otsego, for $625.(Abstract of deed, as recorded in Allegan County, MI, on 18 Apr 1906)30 Mar 1908Died March 30, 1908; Charles E.
