    Notes 
    • Named Daniel, as a final tribute/memory to his father (Daniel R. Page Sr.), who died about 6-months before Wilson was born

      However Daniel R. Page Jr. was already in his mid 30's at this time. In order to avoid the confusion with having 2 children named Daniel, my grandfather was called by his middle name "Wilson".
