    Notes 
    • Family members say he was a sailor and worked on ships in the Gulf of Mexico and up and down the Eastern Seaboard. While on a ship, he became ill and was removed to a hospital on Long Island, New York. Without the family being notified, he died and was buried in a paupers' grave.

      Developed pneumonia en route from Greece. Hospitalized in New York, NY. Ship left NY port for Greece with his identification and trunk. When ship returned to N.Y., trunk sent to family. Someone else claimed his body and got the insurance.

      Was chief engineer with Merchant Marines.

      Lost one finger of his right hand.

      In 1912, E.L. Grooms, bookkeeper at the Dantzler Foundry and Machine Shops, and J.S. Foretich, foreman, invented and patented a rotary retort for extracting turpentine rosin and other products from pure wood. The machine, according to the commissioner of patents in Washington D.C., was the best yet devised at the time.
