NOTE concerning #7:

There is some confusion as to which wife of #6 was the mother of #3.  He married Josephine Hubbard in 1881, and she died 22 March 1886.  He married second, 1 January 1889, Mrs. Mary (Goddard) Este.  Most sources give the mother of #3 as Josephine Hubbard, but one source (see under #3 above) says that #3’s grandfather was Kingston Goddard.  The birth date of #3 would determine which lady was her mother, but there is some confusion with regard to that as well.  The following sources give her the following birth dates:

1885/6                                     1910 census (age 24)

15 Mar 1886                           passenger list of the Malolo, 20 Feb 1929 (San Francisco)

15 Mar 1887                           Social Security Death Index

1887/8                                     1920 census (age 32), 1930 census (age 42)

1889                                        passenger list of the Fort Hamilton, 25 Feb 1921 (NYC)

15 Mar 1895                           passenger list of the City of Newport News, 14 Sep 1939 (NYC)

1896                                        passenger list of the Monarch of Bermuda, 2 Oct 1936 (NYC)

It would appear from the bulk of the evidence that #7 was #6’s first wife, Josephine Hubbard, and that the correct birth date of #3 is 15 Mar 1886 (the later dates of birth being the result of either mistakes or vanity).
