    Notes 
    • Last name was Sowers or something like that (Audrey Benson King 9/18 /95).
      One of the pallbearers for William Birk was Frank Sowards, whom we believe was Rebekah's brother.

      They lived in Grant City a little, and Allendale quite a lot. I believe they
      were in Nebraska. Then they moved to Wyoming, I think. We never kept in
      touch. Their daughter lives in northern California (Audrey Benson King
      9/18/95).

      Birth year is from tombstone. No death date on her tombstone.
