|Bill||RE: Wallace C Winter in Lake Forest, IL|
bit of confusion concerning birth location and paternal grandfather's between Yale Universities Obituary and in case of grandfather U S Census 1850, And Wikipedia's story on the Yale football star Wallace Winter whose 1st son was a WW I hero.
This was passed to me by Dennis Find A Grave #46782277 along with corrections for Wallace's father Edwin Wheeler. The middle name is apparently Charles, I would guess that Marinette, Wisconson is the birth location instead of Hudson where he lived four years later.
The grandfather may have two given names Johnathon & Charles

His [Edwin's] son Wallace's obituary in the Yale Obituary Record shows that Edwin's parents were Charles & Almira Winter:

Also, Wikipedia on Google has a bit about Wallace Charles being a football hero at Yale, and mention's his 1st son an aviator in WW I. You have listed his other two sons.
When a bio is added I normally remove the note in flower.

|Abby Brock-Lane||RE: Harvey Wilson|
I appreciate the advice. Thank you.
|Abby Brock-Lane||Harvey Wilson|
I was wondering if you are related to Harvey Wilson 81933329? I think he may be my great great grandfather but I can't be positive without more information. Do you by any chance know his wife or kids names?
