Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Location: A location is not yet determined. A registry record of the marriage of William and Ina McConnell appears to record it as Yorkshire, Wis. [Wisconsin] but there is no such place. There is a Yorkshire, Ohio and that is the probably the correct place. [marriage-george-mcconnell-1898]

FOLLOWUP

William's parents were John M. George and Mary Banfield. [marriage-george-mcconnell-1898]

The Spear Date Notebook has a W.T. George listed with a birth date of 27 Oct, but no year. If this is combined with the date range from the registry entry for his marriage to Ina McConnell, we can consider a date of 27 Oct 1872. [misc-spear-date-notebook, marriage-george-mcconnell-1898]

When History of Dakota Territory was published, William was a cashier of the First National Bank of Wessington Springs, and thus a business associate of Willis McConnell. [book-history-of-dakota-territory-v5-1915]
