    Notes 
    • Florence was the daughter of J. H. ENGLE and Sarah. She reportedly was a schoolmate of President Dwight EISENHOWER as is evidenced here in this newspaper article published in the Milwaukee Journal, 19 September 1948:

      Methodist Bishop Is Congratulated by Eisenhower.

      Oshkosh, Wis. A letter from a friend to Clifford H. NORTHCOTT, new Methodist bishop of Wisconsin, was read Saturday before the Methodist layman's retreat here. The letter said:

      "Only today I learned of your assignment as bishop of the Methodist churches of Wisconsin. I hasten to add my congratulations and best wishes to those of many thousands of friends. I am sure your long experience as a pastor and your activity in both educational and civic fields will redound to the spiritual, intellectual and social advantage of those you have been assigned to guide.". It was signed, Dwight Eisenhower." Mrs. NORTHCOTT and Eisenhower were schoolmates. The general and university president and the new bishop have been friends many years.
