Census records from 1930 show a James Olsen living in York, Illinois, which is right next to Lommbard / Glen Ellyn. Born in Brooklyn in 1921. The same Olsen died in Midland, Michigan in 2000. According to his Social Security information, his SSN is from Illinois. I feel pretty good about this being the right guy.
