  • Notes 
    • According to his obituary in the Detroit Free Press, he was a compositor for them (1880-1890), not a proofreader as reported in his granddaughter Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer's undated letter quoted in our entry on his mother. From 1890 until his retirement in 1926, he was a customs officer in Detroit. According to Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer, he was also an amateur Shakespeare scholar. He must have been well-liked; obituary notices appeared for him in newspapers in Detroit, Lansing, and Battle Creek.
