Interesting facts
g The 1920 U.S. Census shows Reubin R. Bignell and Elsie residing in Pepin County withtheir children Sidney, Warren (census says birth year is 1913) and Elmer (census says birth year is 1916). Reuben's mother, Delcina, apparently is living with them.
g Some records spell his name as "Rueben" and because of that, his name sometimes is spelled that way on other pages of this Web site
