    Research 
    • (According to notes at John Wehmeyer's World Connect site at Rootsweb, an email from Charlie Ward dated January 4, 2004, stated the following information:) Charlie noted that William was listed as "W. A." Kurtz in the 1880 Census for Franklin Township, Lincoln County, Kansas, but after that, finding him was more problematic. To date it was only known where his sons William S., Lee A., and his daughter, Helen were, in 1900. In the 1860 and 1870 censuses, William was listed as "Alfred." The only known record in which he was named William Alfred was the 1850 federal census.
    Died  27 Jul 1924  [9
    • (He probably died in Greenwood, Arkansas.)
