Notes for William Alfred HARPHANT


!DEATH: Obituary - William Alfred HARPHANT, Xenia Daily Gazette, Xenia, Ohio, Saturday, 26 September 1964, p. 2.

CENSUS: 1910 Federal Census - William and Viola HARPHANT, Greene Township, Clark County, Ohio, (ED 6, sheet 7A, #120-122).

MISC: According to family knowledge, William was the child of Margaret Hayslet and Thomas Harpin/Harphant. It seems that Margaret had abused William and that is why he went to a "foster home". While working on a ranch, he met his wife Viola. It also apears as though William and Lucy had different mothers (they were born 3 months apart).
