He was admitted to the Home, Marion branch Indiana, in August 1890 and transferred to the Central branch in January 1903. A laborer, residence Fort Wayne, Indiana and with nearest relative Catharine Oomen, Brussels, Belgium. So, his family name is rather Oomen than Amen. He stated being born about 1835 and the only trace I found is in the 1880 census, when a Mauddlin Amos, 49 y.o., is listed  at Fort Wayne, a porter in hotel, born Belgium. He died on May 26, 1903 and is buried in the Home cemetery Section N, row 24, grave 50.
