  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Christopher Congdon (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 15 Apr 2010. Cites/notes the following:
      • 8 Jun 1900 Census of District 19, Providence, Ward 2, Providence, Rhode Island, p. 18 (sheet 9A), residing at 70 Lancaster St., dwelling 144, family 199:
        • Wood, George, head, b. Oct 1843, age 56, mar. 14 yrs., b. NY, parents b. England, Engraver (Print Works)
        • Wood, Elizabeth L., wife, b. May 1851, age 49, mar. 14 yrs., 3 children, 3 living, b. MA, father b. Scotland, mother b. Ireland
        • Wood, Frederick J., son, b. Nov 1869, age 30, single, b. RI, father b. NY, mother b. MA, Plumber
        • Wood, George M., son, b. Dec 1886, age 13, b. RI, father b. NY, mother b. MA, at school
        • Wood, Harold M., son, b. Oct 1891, age 8, b. RI, father b. NY, mother b. MA, at school
      • Massachusetts Marriages, 1841-1915 (original image available) https://www.familysearch.org/search/recordDetails/show?uri=https://api.familysearch.org/records/pal:/MM9.1.r/9JCM-2 D2/p1
        • Name: George M Wood
        • Age: 28
        • Date: 03 Nov 1915
        • Born: about 1887 (Slight discrepancy here)
        • Father's name: George Wood
        • Mother's Maiden Name: Elizabeth Mckay
      • Rhode Island Deaths and Burials, 1802-1950 https://www.familysearch.org/search/recordDetails/show?uri=https://api.familysearch.org/records/pal:/MM9.1.r/MBQQ-Q 3V/p1
        • Name: George Mackay Wood
        • Death: 07 Aug 1942 Providence, RI
        • Age: 54 (b. about 1888)
        • Father: George Wood
        • Mother: Elizabeth Louise Mackay
        • NOTE: OK, this record has some issues. But it also says his wife is 'Mable'. I'm thinking A) Transcription issues, and B) I bet 'Mable' didn't really know her mother-in-law's middle name. At this point, Elizabeth has been dead for 25 years. She and George got married 03 Nov 1915 so she and Elizabeth may not have not known each other for very long. According to their marriage certificate it is a second marriage for both of them as well... To me, this is at least proof that George Wood's mom's middle name starts with an 'L'.
      • Burial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=23386883&df=all& (Elizabeth, George and George McKay are all buried with the same headstone.)
      • Middle name of Elizabeth's and George's son was from his WWI and WWII draft cards. I honestly think that having the middle name 'McKay' is kind of a dead giveaway of his mom's maiden name.
