    Notes 
    • William died two years after they married, leaving Jessie 14 months old and William Simon Jr. yet unborn.  Dora's mother, Jane Cravey Bumstead, was still living but she was also widowed, so Dora's brother, Henry, helped Dora care for her two infant children.  Even though he only had one arm, he would come and plow the fields for Dora and help her with the cows.
