[1] R‑1 gave her death date as 19 April and R‑4 gave it as 29 April.

[2] R‑1 gave his death date as 1917 and R‑4 gave it as 1912.

[3] R‑1 gave the birth date as 1887 and R‑4 gave it as 1890.  1890 seems more likely to be correct, since the 1887 date only gives about 8 months between the births of the 2 children.

[4] The 1888 date of birth is from R‑4, but the 1930 census shows age 27 in 1930.
