1900 Census shows Forrest 11yrs, Harry 13yrs & William 17 yrs in Pennslyvania Reform School. They were the children of James Aston/Austin and Rachel GLASS. James and Rachel were divorced sometime in the the 1890/1900's..They had 12 children, only 4 were alive in 1900. They were the boys above and an older sister, we think named BELLE. When the boys came out of Reform school, the name changed happened. Now, my grandfather went by AUSTIN. I found my grandfather, FORREST CARL AUSTIN in Cleveland, OH. I also found Rachel and her name changed to Austin also. This was in the 1910 Census. I found a marriage certificate for Forrest in May 20, 1909 and he married ELIZABETH HANDLER. In the 1910 census, Forrest is a boarder who is married but Elizabeth is not there with him. I found Forrest and Viola's marriage license. It is also in Cleveland in 1917 and Forrest says that his wife(Elizabeth) died. I just found this out 2 weeks ago...My mom is 73ys old and never new about this...If you think that you have any information, could you please let me know. Thanks
