There is a published tree with William and spouses
Mary Ann Burditt 1886
Elsie Mary Parker in 1921  and children.
It shows the death in 1923 also plus a photo.

There are some odd things too though.

Thatís all really interesting thank you. I do think the Scottish connection will be John Davidson (possibly his father). It would be interesting to see the published tree - am I able to see it?
