NOTES: All of the "Surnames Covered" are those on the particular pages of interest in the book.

* This is an obvious mispelling and should be SPREEMAN as spelled a couple of entries further on. Angeline WILSON did marry Charles SPREEMAN and is the daughter of John G. and Lucy WILSON.

** The original record also shows that Angeline SPREEMAN was also dropped on this date.

*** This is only 13 days after he was convicted of assault and battery on his 90 year old mother.

**** "Wife" is an obvious error because Angeline WILSON is Robert WILSON's sister. Robert was not married until June 15, 1914 and then to Bessie OSWALD.

***** The original record has additional entries as:

                1934, 4, 25,  Amos WILSON and Delia WILSON submitted letters of withdrawal.
                1934, 5, 23,  Amos WILSON and Delia WILSON sent letters dropping them.

I was privaledged to have had the opportunity to read the original monthly meeting minutes in the basment of the Tecumseh Friends Church in the summer of 1996. I could not find all that were included in the book, but I did find those after about 1900. To my great surprise I found out that my dad, Amos D. Wilson was the Monthly Meeting Clerk, and thus wrote up the entries from January 28, 1925 through November 23, 1932. He did have a couple of absences such as when his first wife, Edna died. He was elected MM Clerk for the coming year in the December 24, 1924 meeting. This explains why there is so much detail about the WILSON family on page 452 of the book. Most of the normal other entries do not have as much total detail, especially about the deaths.
