You know sometimes they wouldn't cross a T but cross an L instead...I tried Galen but no luck.

I thought the name may have been a misspelled version of Gaetan but a french name doesn't fit with the rest of the name. 

If you feel like a shot in the dark, what about looking for a Gaetan Henri Rubin?

No Gaetans of any stripe.

I just had a look at the enumerator. George H Holtzmann was born in Ontario but his father was German. He enumerated himself and describes himself as a "carbenter". We lived in Germany for a number of years and saw this ourselves...p and b are both pronounced soft and often confused.

So on to the b's in Buben. Or whatever :P

Nice one,China!
I was wondering what sort of enumerator we were dealing with.

Aaaand...nothing.

I can't even find the family in 1911 or later. Worldwide search for David Chester East, Ida May East, Rex Linwood East. Nothing.

I suspect this whole mob climbed back into their buried spaceship and went home to Alpha Centauri.

Did you see the notes on automated genealogy from someone who transcribed this......

The following note applies to line 12:
'Surname and given reversed - a common problem with this enumerator'
* The following note applies to line 24:
'Age inconsistent with birth year - a common problem with this enumerator'
