    Notes 
    • 1995 query from Bill Wanless on AOL to Fred Ray says "Seeking parentage of my grandfather Wm. Dennis Wanless. My grandmother's name was Ada King of Akron OH. Wm. Dennis' other wife was a Sarah from the area. My father was Wm. D. and his brother was Joe. Some legal papers list Patrick B. Wanless and Goldie McKenzie and a property on the Elk River that I believe contains a bar in Slady Fork called Billy's Hootsville Beer Emporium. My father was born in Slady Fk. My father told me his father was a cook for the timber workers and there is a reference to his having had six children."
