Note 1

A genealogist doing research for June, daughter of Erma Havlik had reason to think Daniel's mother's name was Barbera. She did have a question mark by the notation. I am only doubting this because of Passenger list (on Latter Day Saints site) lists two women with last name of Schwab ( ages 70 and 77). They could be aunts but would be likely that one was his mother. The names are listed as Anna, age 70 and Suzanne, age 77.
