Notes

  • William married Emily Caroline Foster abotu 1778.  The 1900 censusreports they had been married 22 years then.  Thier first child wasEdward, who was born about 1878.  the 1900 census reported his birthdatre as April 1880, but other indications say the year was 1879.Dates on their daughter Mattie's grave reports her birth in 1879, butin the 1900 census she was reproted as only 18 years old. and born inDec 1881.  Birth dates on the 1900 census were often wrong. I havealso found dates on many graves are wrong also.
