Response--Obit: Gault, Edward W. Jr. (1890 - 1959)

Contact: H.A. Kippenhan, Jr.


I transcribed the obituary just as it appeared in the newspaper. I believe the obituary has a typo. Edward Gault, Jr's father was Edward Abraham Gault.

Hence, if his son was Edward W. Gault, the use of Jr. is really incorrect.

That written, people have peculiar notions about the use of "Jr." as part of a son's name. I have an uncle, George Edwin Hintz, the son of George Henry Hintz, and he's always been called George, Jr. by family and friends.
