Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Location: This database uses Geneseo, Illinois. A registry record of the marriage of William George and Ina appears to record it as Geneseo, Ala. [Alabama] There's no such place in Alabama, and Ina's parents were living in Geneseo, Illinois in 1870, so this seems like a better choice. [marriage-george-mcconnell-1898]
