Regarding William E.'s middle name, Elsberry. His granddaughter, who grew up living with Uncle Willie and Aunt Bessie Bill, reported that there was always some confusion between his Elsberry and Elsby, the middle name given to their eldest son, Cecil ELSBY Burton. Elsby was not a shortened version of Elsberry, but a name from Aunt Bessie's Kelley family. Elsberry is from the Willie's Burton or Smith lines -- a search which continues.
