Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday William Edward Christensen

Over the last couple of weeks, I have featured articles for the children of Niels Christensen and Emma Godfree Slawson.  This week, I will be sharing articles found for their third son, William Edward Christensen.

The first article I found that mentioned William was an inquest into a suicide.  Although the article named him as William Ewart Christensen, I checked the inquest file at FamilySearch, and his name was William Edward Christensen, and he was a farmer at Welshpool.
