[Send Reply] RE: Kenneth Gray
Dear Larry - We're wondering if it's possible for Dad's surviving family (his children) to leave a note of explanation on his page regarding the wrong birth date and false name "Methodius"on his stone so that anyone doing genealogy work would know they had the right person when viewing this site. Kenneth Gray was born in 1917 according to his adoption paperwork, school records, the 1920 and 1930 census, etc. When he returned to the US after WWII from civilian construction work in the Azores he reinvented himself for reasons unclear to us, making himself four years younger and using "Methodius" for his first name when he met and married our mother. He was able to get a new social security account using that false birth date which is why the death record says 1921. We had no idea of any of this until several years after his death when we came across some of his records and then started checking on everything.

Following from South Bend Weekly Tribune on 07May1881:

Death of a Great Sufferer.

Some weeks ago the Tribune contained an account of an accident which happened (to) the venerable Mrs. Rupel, mother of Mrs. Andrew Longley. She was a partial paralytic, and in getting up from the table fell and broke a hip bone. She suffered ever since with the fracture until 6 o'clock Friday night when she passed peacefully away to her long rest. The funeral occurred at Mr. Longley's residence on Sumption prarie(sic), Sunday afternoon, with Dunker services.

Mrs. Rupel was one of the earliest residents of Elkhart county, and eventually moved to Sumption prairie, where she made her home with her daughter. She was an active, energetic woman, until disabled by paralysis, and was at all times greatly esteemed by all who knew her..3 Census records give age as born between 1790-1802. Jim Coleman has Catherine born 1802 in PA or OH.
