Shared note
In 1910 census, had not worked at all in prior year. Frederick News of 1910-04-14 (just days before the census-taker visited) notes: "Mr. William Burger, Telegraph street, is quite sick." Tombstone gives birth year as 1882, but the Mount Olivet Cemetery database lists his birthdate as 1/3/1881, and states that he was employed as a clerk.
