Joseph W. Orcutt (b. 1883)

Yet another Orcutt puzzle to come out of Connecticut. Can we just hire a researcher to set up shop there and work these out?! :-)

Joseph William Orcutt (b. Dec 15, 1883 in CT) shows up in a few city directories and one Federal Census (1930), but no where else (that I've found)! He married an Irene B. ? (b. 1893; d. Dec 20, 1964). The best I can tell, Joseph and Irene were married in 1926, this being the second wife of Joseph. Joseph was married first in 1906 - no idea to whom. I do know he had at least one child - Milton Joseph Orcutt (b. Oct 23, 1907; d. Apr 2, 1998).

Milton shows up in at least two censuses - 1920 and 1930. In 1920, he's a boarder with the Grubb family in Orange, CT.

So far, through directories, I've placed Joseph W. Orcutt in:

1906-1912: New Haven, CT
1918-1920: Waterbury, CT
1925-1930: Southington, CT

He died before 1961, as his wife shows up in Southington as a widow in that city directory.

So, if he was born in 1883, there should be at least three Federal Censuses to find him and I've found NOTHING! I've even taken the city directories, located the street, and gone page/page and he's not living in the locations listed in the directories!

Anyone out there have an idea who this guy is, and more importantly, who his father is?
