Vance was the son of Robert January Huston and his wife, Kate Francis. He was actually born in Chehalis County, Washington but that's now Grays Harbor County.

For years I have looking for documents pertaining to my grandfather's brother, Robert Huston, but couldn't find anything past the 1880 Census. Then today I found that someone on Ancestry had copied my mother's information. I checked that tree, and found the missing Robert, my mother's uncle.

From there I found that he was married and had two sons, Vance and James. I found information on both of them, including a memorial here on Find A Grave for James. There was none for Vance.

From what I could find, Robert and his wife separated and Robert took both boys and went to Japan. The first record of them that I found was a Certificate of Registration of American Citizen, completed on Aug 31, 1907 in Nagasaki, Japan. Robert and his sons were then living in Shimonoseki, Japan. The same documents were found for 1909 and 1911. Others may exist as well.

In 1911, Vance returned to the United States. I haven't found any records for him from 1911 until 1920. In the 1920 Census, Vance is listed as living at the California State Hospital, aka Patton Mental Hospital, in San Bernardino County, California. It was there that he died on October 21, 1932.

Vance's death certificate, which I received in April, 2014, offered some new information. Prior to entering the hospital, he lived in Los Angeles County and worked as a waiter. Vance was admitted to Patton Mental Hospital on October 4, 1918.

His cause of death is listed as chronic myocarditis, with a 16 year history of dementia praecox. According to Wikipedia, "Dementia praecox (a 'premature dementia' or 'precocious madness') refers to a chronic, deteriorating psychotic disorder characterized by rapid cognitive disintegration, usually beginning in the late teens or early adulthood." Today we know this as schizophrenia.

Vance was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. His brother James was laid to rest next to him in 1960.

130 "Civilian Conservation Corps
Preserving America's Natural Resources

America was in the grip of the Great Depression when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated in March of 1933. More than twenty-five percent of the population was unemployed, hungry and without hope. The New Deal programs instituted bold changes in the federal government that energized the economy and created an equilibrium that helped to bolster the needs of citizens.

Out of the economic chaos emerged the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The goal was two-fold: conservation of our natural resources and the salvage of our young men. The CCC is recognized as the single greatest conservation program in America and it served as a catalyst to develop the very tenets of modern conservation. The work of America's young men dramatically changed the future and today we still enjoy a legacy of natural resource treasures that dot the American landscape."

140 "New Jersey Death and Burial Records" on Ancestry says she died on 30 Oct 1918, which is the date everyone is using. However, the Woodbury Daily Times printed an obituary for Margaretta on both 23 Oct 1918 and 24 Oct 1918, saying she died on the 22nd and her funeral was held on the 26th. Therefore, she could not have died on the 30th. Bauer, Margaretta Barbara (I7060)

143 "Patrolman Frank Knoebel was shot and killed while questioning a burglary suspect in the basement of the Odd Fellows Hall on Mulberry Street. Upon his arrival, the janitor led Patrolman Knoebel to a man sitting in a chair near the furnace. Chief Stewart soon arrived and advised him to stall the suspect while he went to get a witness to identify him. Soon afterward, the suspect tried to flee and during a struggle, the suspect pulled a gun and fired two shots, striking Patrolman Knoebel in the abdomen. Patrolman Knoebel was able to get the gun away from the suspect and climb a flight of stairs to block the exit, while the janitor subdued the suspect until Chief Stewart returned and took him into custody. The suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to death, but his sentence was later commuted. The offender was released from prison in 1949 and has since died. Patrolman Knoebel had served with the Madison Police Department for one year. He was survived by his wife and son."
