Notes
a. Note:   Sara Clark, 524 Central Ave., Lapel, IN 46051; 317) 534-3461. Have also seen birth date as 11 Jun 1869 and death as 7 May 1923??? Judy Bunaskiy -- [email protected] -- My grandfather John William York was born June 10 1869 and died May 7 1922. That is what is in my father's bible as well as on his headstone. I challenged the death certificate dates once and was told that sometimes it took over a year for them to be turned in and many times the dates are wrong. In this case they are, the above dates are correct. He was married three times. Once to Melvina Coffey on May 2 1897. She must have died before 1900 because he is listed as a widow on that census. His second wife was Lottie Beecham Garrett. They were married April 13 1909. She was born Feb 02 1890 and died Feb 23 1912 of stomach cancer. They had one daughter, Flossie Mai born Nov 28 1910 and died June 09 1982. Flossie was married to Enes Janes. John William married my grandmother Dollie Mai (not Ann) Hulse on December 24 1914. She was born June 15 1898 and died August 12 1938 (not 1948). She is buried in Roe Cemetery at Rome Tn. Her second husband was Henry Wade Vibbart. They were married on November 19 1927 in Cloyds Landing Ky. Dollie was the daughter of John Wesley Hulse May 08 1875 - May 05 1965 and Ester (not Easter) Frank Melton June 28 1871 - April 25 1955. John William and Dollie had three children. Elsie Love York (Allison) born Feb 06 1915, died December 19 2003. My father Vernon Edward York born Feb 05 1919 died May 09 1986. William Clyde York Sr born June 21, 1921 died July 16 1944 in St. Lo France.
  Chester "Ray" York and Erika, 4017 Lk.Bayshore Dr., Bradenton,Fl 34205; 941-756-5356; [email protected] Ella Robson -- [email protected] Perhaps an added piece of evidence can eliminate some of the confusion over the identity of Jefferson's son, John William. There is a KY (Cumberland Co.) death certificate for him and he appears to have been known as "William." On the certificate his birth is listed as June 11, 1865 (?) His death date was listed as "May 7, 1923" and his age at the time of death was listed as "57 yrs..1mo..4da." He was listed as married at the time of his death. His father was listed as "Jefferson York" and born in "Tennessee." His mother was listed as "Lucindy Stephens" and born in "Tennessee." The informant was "Dally [or Dolly] York" whose address was given as "Burkesville, Ky." Place of burial was listed as "Pierce Graveyard" and the date of burial was "May 8, 1923." The undertaker was George Parrish of Breeding, KY. Although I presumed Dolly/Dally was probably his wife I was unable to find him/them in a census to confirm or refute my assumption. Erika York -- [email protected] -- I have a death Certificate that John William York son of Jefferson & Lucinda Stevens York b:Jun 11, 1865 in Burksville, Cumberland Co. KY d:May 7, 1923 in Burksville, Cumberland Co. KY. I think that his acctual bith date was Jun 11, 1869, which would coincide with the ages in the census. I believe the birth date given on the death certificate was recorded wrong. But one thing for sure, both of his parents' names were om it. Also the name John is also not on the death certificate, but that doesn't surprise me since alot of them went by their middle names anyway. I am enclosing a copy of the death certificate.
