Albert enumerated in the household of Charles Lonkman in Hartford Township, Adams County, Indiana as white, male, age 6, laborer, born in Indiana, father born in France, mother born in Ohio. Also living in the household is George Musser, age 18, single, laborer, born in California, father born in France, mother born in Ireland. This George Musser - born in California - who later became the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Colorado. He died in 1921, with parents Christian Musser and Mary O'Reilly listed on the death certificate. Based upon this evidence, it is presumed that 6 year old Albert Musser, boarding in the Lonkford household along with George, is a half-brother to George and is the son of Christian Musser and his second wife, Sophia Reicheldieffer.1910 Marriage:2155, source cited as Adams County, Indiama Marriage Records, Book I, p. 564.

L. Reicheldeffer, Geneva, Indiana; relationship to deceased, cousin; burial, West Lawn Cemetery, Geneva, Indiana. Note: Based upon the presumed early death of Albert's parents and his advanced age, it is presumed that the listing of Chas Musser as father refers to Christian Musser and that the listing for Ethel O'Grady as mother is from a faded memory of references to Mary O'Reilly, Christian's first wife. Note that informant is E. L. Reicheldeffer, a cousin, which further supports that Sophia Reicheldiefer was the mother of Albert Musser.
