  • Notes 
    • 1930 census gives him as "motorman in coal mine".

      According to a descendant, "After four kids, including my grandfather, he went out one day for cigarettes and never returned. The family story is that he went and started another family. I'm pretty sure the second family was with his first cousin Sarah N White."
