Choteau Paul

Choteau W. Paul was born in Nebraska in 1869, but his father Henry Wells Paul died as a result of an accident with a machine at an agricultural rade show 10 years later, in Chico, California. Choteau and his mother (Helen Dweller) were living with her father in Ft. Dodge, Iowa in 1880. I have recently fould Choteau in the 1910 census — he was a civil engineer for the Northern Pacific Railroad, and was listed twice that year, in different rooming houses (in Billings and Livingston, Montana — both sites of significant rail activity at the time). He was foreman of a corners jury in Los Angeles in 1947, and died there in 1962.

He’d been married for 3 years in 1910, but I don’t know anything more about that.
