Note 1

!Note: When younger children died, it was a common practice in Scotland to give the next child of the same sex the name of the lost child.

!Source: A 1905 Topeka Capital article [Source 34] gives the date of birth as 12 Aug 1871. The LDS IGI [Source 36] gives the date of birth as 6 Sep 1871.

!Note: One family record lists her birthplace as Falkirk Scotland. However, birth record shows otherwise. Came to Kansas Sep 1884.

!Note: Grandfather James A. Hotchkiss' notes show two dates for this marriage, 10 May 1889, and 20 Sep 1889. The former appears only once, so will use the latter which appears several times until another source is found.
