I have a death certificate for William C. Hennessy which gives his birth place as Michigan, birth date as 16 Oct 1889, and parents' names as George Hennessy and UNK Coon.
William lived briefly in North Dakota, around 1910, and in that same year went to Wyoming with Marie Filla (whom he had met in ND) and maried her in Sheridan.William died in Sheridan, Sheridan, WY in 1915 and is buried in the Sheridan Municiple Cemetery.
If anyone knows of William's parents, I would appreciate hearing from you.
To confuse matters, there is a "perfect" match of a couple (George Hennessy and Ada Coon) living in Paw Paw, Van Buren, MI at the right time.Their recorded children are:
Unnamed: b. 27 Mar 1878, d. 17 Apr 1878. Jennie, b. 19 Aug. 1881 Cora, b. 12 Apr, 1889* Helen, b. 3 Jul 1894.
* Cora's birth date makes the date-or-record of William's birth of October of the same year an impossibility.
