1.  My father, Arthur Robert MATTHIESEN (b. 1918), says he remembers that Clarence had a brother named Fred, whom he met and knew as "Little Freddie."  He says Freddie was Clarence's youngest brother and that he later married.  My father and I both recollect that Elmer was a bachelor and never married.

It appears Fred may have been enumerated twice in the 1870 Census, once here and once, seven weeks later, in the home of Henry DREISCHMEYER, who appears to be his older brother.  As an unmarried laborer, it would be easy for Fred to move about, and it wouldn't be the first time I've seen someone enumerated twice in the same census either that or we've got two Frederick DREISCHMEYERs, both age 20, both born Germany, and both living in Gilroy in 1870!

Fred and his parents were born in Germany, not Illinois, though Fred probably lived in Illinois as a child because his parents died in Chicago.  Based on his tombstone, Fred was born in Mar 1850, and based on all other censuses, Fred was born in 1849 or 1850, not 1851.  It's unlikely that Fred was the informant for this record, so we would expect some errors with regard to him.
