Supplementary biographical materials - when present - are from a variety of attributed sources, such as printed obituaries, newspaper articles, local histories, genealogical publications, census records, etc.
Every effort has been made to accurately represent the wording and spelling found in each source. We do not claim that the information is without error.
The original records were compiled by individuals in another time and place, when standards of education, and handwriting were different from what they are today. They may contain inaccuracies as to fact, dates, and spelling due to the human nature of the persons doing the recording.
If a reader notices something that appears to be a typographical or transcription error, we will be happy to compare it with the source from which it was extracted, and make any needed correction.
