11245 or 11445 and it is Stephenson or Stevenson?

An astute reader noticed the slight discrepancy in the address for William Apgar in issue 3. Yes there is a different address in the illustration from what is stated in the text of the article. I should have noticed it and commented about it.

In Mary's "Affidavit of Non-Residence" she indicates William lived at 11245 Stephenson Street.
In Mary's testimony she indicated he lived at 11445 Stevenson Avenue.

We'll make the modifications and post a notice when a corrected issue is available.

Whether or not the discrepancy was on purpose or not on Mary's part is another matter entirely. All of which indicates the importance of accurately citing the source and how sources within the same document series can disagree with each other.
