  • Notes 
    • “William had considerable talent in drawing. After attending Austin schools he attended and graduated from business college. Then, after some business office experience, he went into the dairy business, hard work but a livelihood.

      “When his young wife died, leaving him with two small children, his mother helped care for them as well as did their aunts and uncles on both parents’ sides.” [11]
