 Notes & Citations

  1. There is doubt about William’s year of birth. His death certificate states 27 Dec 1899; an application for a veteran’s headstone stated 27 Dec 1901, but “1901” was deleted and “1898” written; the headstone has 1898; ages in census records indicate 1900, 1901, 1900, 1900. He was not listed in his parents' household in the 1900 census.
