  • Notes 
    • "He was a forestry worker in MI, following the lumber industry, moving to new areas as the timber gave out in worked-over forests. They lived back and forth across the border between Ontario, Pennsylvania, and New York State. All 4 children were born in Ontario, but most of their growing up was in Cross Fork, PA, a community no longer in existence. Maude mentioned going to school in Comber, Ontario, so they must have lived there before Cross Fork. The timber gave out, the town caught fire and so the family returned (1910-1911?) to Windsor, where William found employment building the new Ford plant. When that was completed, he worked in the factory till April 12, 1929, he came home from work, sat down and immediately died from a heart attack." Ruth La Bounty Puffer.
