    Notes 
    • The death and burial details (10 September 1883, Chetopa, Labette, Kansas) were previously suspect as there are no other known family events that I could find in this city. However, his grave marker was found showing this as his actual burial place.
    • Found on a web forum at http://genforum.genealogy.com/earehart/messages/3.html regarding the name change from Earhart to Arehart:

      "My great-great-great grandfather was George Earhart. His son was William Marks Arehart. They had a falling out over George's chosen profession (my understanding is he worked in some kind of government position). William Decided to change the spelling of his last name to Arehart."

    Benton Township, Knox, Missouri. June 15-19, 1880.

    Shows William Arehart (66), Jane Garrigus Arehart (56), Florence Fee (25 - married daughter to John Fee), Alice Arehart (23), P.C. Arehart (16 - son), Theodore Simpson (8 - grandson), and Jennie Fee (1 - grandaughter, daughter of Florence).

    P.C. Arehart is almost certainly Pliny Crume Arehart.

    It's quite possible that their son-in-law John Fee had died by 1880, thus daughter Florence and granddaughter Jennie were living there.
