    Notes 
    • From Susan B.: Emily accused William of "associating with lewd women." Emily filed for divorce on 26 September 1907 for adultery discovered in 1906. But the big mystery is that the divorce case was dismissed before the day of the final decree. Cook County archives cannot find any continuation but they say it may be misfiled.
