    [The death certificate would appear to include some guesswork. William's date of birth, according to his gravestone was 21 Apr 1869, making him aged 50 at death. The birth date on the certificate, stating the same day and month as the date of death, may have been derived from a guess that he was 45. The stated wife's name Mary would have been a mistake for his mother Mary.]
