  • Notes 
    • Birth: The Delvee records give his birth date as 28 May 1873 which was followed by the Find-a-Grave entry. His gravestone gives it as 1874, and the 1900 Census gives May 1874, and his World War I Draft Registration, which he personally filled out, gives it as 7 May 1874. Clearly the Delvee records are in error.
