Note 1

!Notes: Grandpa Jimmy had Esther down as born in the hospital in Topeka. However as her obitary said she was born in Brlingame, I asked great-aunt Virgene. She says that although great-grandma had a lot of trouble while pregnant with Esther, the kids only spent the afternoon down the block at Isabelle Easton's house, comming home by evening. She thinks she remmembers one of her great-aunts going to help with the birth. So she thinks the birth actually happened in Bulingame.

!Burial: Per Connie Gibbar, burial record says burried 4/1/94 in lot 931-2nd add.
