In 1900, three year old Lynton “Pappy” Scharff lived in Jennings, Louisiana with Esther and Eduard, his parents.
In 1910, Lynton 13, and his father Eduard Scharff were boarders in the home of Sigmund and Mabel Brown in Matagorda, Texas; his mother Esther had died about 1906 of tuberculosis.
And in 1920, Lynton, recorded as ‘Scharff, L L’ (which were his initials) on the census rolls and his age was recorded as 22 (which is consistent with his birthdate in 1897), was a roomer in Houston, Texas. His first child, Eduard Lynton Scharff, was born in Houston in 1923.
