    Notes 
    • George was an adopted son (see his father's Notes).

      Whilst it hasn't been possible to prove it, it seems likely that the George HUNSLEY who appears in the following censuses was 'George E Hunsley', adopted son of George Hunsley. There is a problem about this assumption but it could be explained by the fact that George was adopted. The problem is that the record (at Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947 at Ancestry) of George's death gives his birth date as 4 June 1875, place of birth Liverpool, England and his parents' names as Geo HUNSLEY and Elizabeth WALKER. The birth date doesn't agree with that given on the 1900 US census and there is nothing to explain the mother's name as Elizabeth Walker. I can't find any Liverpool connection that helps. The middle intial 'E' doesn't appear in any record from 1900 onwards.

      The census details are:

      1900 US Federal Census (recorded as HONSILY): in West 12th Street, District 0219, Chicago Ward 9, Cook County. Illinois (all HUNSLEY), George (head, born Jun 1870, age 29, married 6 years, born England as were parents, arrived in USA 1872, not naturalised, machinist), Pearl (wife, born 1876, age 23, married 6 years, 1 child living, born Wisconsin) and May B (daughter, born Mar 1897, age 3, born Illinois).

      1910 US Federal Census: in 12th Street, District 0834, Chicago Ward 19, Cook County. Illinois (all HUNSLEY), George (head, 39, married 16 years, born England as were parents, arrived in USA 18??, not naturalised, machinist, shop), Pearl (wife, age 33, married 16 years, 1 child living, born Wisconsin, saleswoman, phonograph) and May (daughter, age 13, born Illinois).

      Ancestry has George's U.S., World War I Draft Registration Card, 1917-1918.. Birth date is given there as 4 June 1875, five years out.

      1920 US Federal Census: in Roosevelt Street, District 1073, Chicago Ward 19, Cook County. Illinois (all HUNSLEY), George (head, 44 (sic), born England as were parents, arrived in USA 1876 or 1896, naturalised 1897, machinist, City of Chicago), Pearl (wife, age 43, born Wisconsin) and May (daughter, age 22, born Illinois, filing clerk).

      After George's death Pearl appeared as follows:

      1930 US Federal Census: in Cottage Grove, District 82, Chicago, Cook County. Illinois (both HUNSLEY), Pearl (head, age 53, widow, born Wisconsin, clerk, store) and Mae (daughter, age 33, born Illinois, clerk, office).
