    Here he is in the 1920 census:

    Head George Rutherford M 25 Wisconsin
    Wife Irma R Rutherford F 25 Wisconsin
    Son Vernon K Rutherford M 2 Wisconsin
    Aunt Mary A Van Doren F 71 New York

    In 1940, he is in the Nebraska State Penitentiary and Hospital.

    For some reason, I cannot find him or his parents in 1930, so I can't find information on any siblings...

    There is a distant relative on Ancestry trees, but they probably do not know of Unclaimed's existence...

    Tree owner = Owner: lseverin55

    I think I can find other living relatives

    So it looks like Vernon was born to George and Irma, George later died and Irma remarried Victor in around 1929.

    As far as I can see, Vernon was an only child, and Victor and Irma did not have any further children either.

    Name: Vernon Kenneth Rutherford
    [Vernon K Rutherford]
    Gender: Male
    Race: White
    Birth Date: 22 May 1917
    Birth Place: Winegar, Wisconsin
    Death Date: 30 Apr 1996
    Father: George Rutherford
    Mother: Irma R Minton
    Type of Claim: Original SSN.
    Notes: Jun 1938: Name listed as VERNON KENNETH RUTHERFORD; 23 May 1996: Name listed as VERNON K RUTHERFORD
    I found this on a site I don't have a subscription to so can't see more:
    Mildred Elenor Rutherford (born Russell), 1923 - 2004
    Mildred Elenor Rutherford (born Russell) was born in 1923.
    Mildred married Vernon Kenneth Rutherford. (I do not know if this is the correct Vernon Kenneth Rutherford or not)
    Vernon was born in 1918.
    They had one child.
    Mildred passed away in 2004, at age 81.

    Vernon was in prison in Nebraska in 1940 for forgery (and was listed as a transient), and he was writing bad checks in Hurley WI and Wakefield MI in 1947. Then I find nothing until his death.
