    Notes:

    Dates for William Richard Workman:

    Kentucky Birth Records, 1852-1910 gives his birth date as 7 October 1875.

    Notes taken by Jeannette Hayden in conversation with his daughter Neville Workman give his birth date as 4 October 1875.

    The 1880 Fulton County, KY census lists him as "W. R." and gives his age as 5, which is consistent with that.

    But the 1900 Fulton County, KY census gives his birthdate as "Sept. 1876" and his age as 23.

    The 1910 census gives his birth date as "about 1877"; the 1920 census says "abt 1878".

    And the Hammonds family tree page gives his birthdate as 4 October 1877.

    The Hammonds page is our only source for his death date. We've put Detroit down as his place of death because Patrick's mother recollects, based on conversations with his father's family members, that in later years he came up north and had a small store -- "a little candy store, which could have been a sort of convenience store, in Detroit." Evidently his wife Kate and his daughter Mildred wouldn't see him, but his daughter Neville would visit him and called him "Papa."

    -----

    This, which is primarily about his father, gives his dates as 4 Oct 1877 - 1 Jul 1945. It also calls him "Willie R. Workman."

    We're going to go with 4 October 1875 for these reasons:

    (1) It's what his daughter Neville remembered
    (2) The Kentucky record (7 October) may actually be a christening
    (3) It's also the date given by the rootsweb page cited just above, albeit in 1877, not 1875

    -----

    There is a Find a Grave page for William Richard "Willie" Workman, who would appear to be our William Workman. There is no genealogical information shown -- neither parents, nor spouse, nor children -- and the only date shown is a birthdate of 1876. But it does claim that he's buried in Fairview Cemetery, Fulton, Kentucky, and it shows a headstone which reads:

    WORKMAN

    GRACE HORACE WILLIE JEFF SIS

    Our William Workman had siblings named Grace and Horace; his father was named Jefferson; and his mother Narcissa was generally addressed as "Sis." So wherever and whenever he died, he would appear to be buried here.

Kate (daughter of Monroe Marshall Jacobs and Mary Frances "Fannie" Butler) was born 11 Mar 1886, Milan, Gibson, Tennessee; died 1964, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan; was buried , Forest Lawn Cemetery, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan.
