    Notes 
    • The movements of William and his family in New York are unclear. The Family of Dewitt Gilbert and Elma Phelps Ottman states that all of William and Polly's children were born in Oswego County New York, most at Hastings but the last two at Clay. However, his son Menzo's birthplace is given as Schoharie County in his Civil War muster records.

      William, Polly and their family moved to Wisconsin in he 1850's and to Minnesota circa 1870.

      William was a cooper in Rochester, Minnesota until he retired in old age and went to live first with Dewitt and then with Sidney.
    • Two years were given for William Ottmans birth, 1806 (p15) and 1808 (p 12) in The Family of Dewitt Gilbert and Elma Phelps Ottman.
