  • Notes 
    • William built a wooden table with a built in linen bench in 1863. 40 years later, he gave it to his son William Pleasant Monroe as a wedding gift. William Pleasant's daughter, Harriet (Monroe) Hansen inherited the table in 1955. The table was in bad shape after being used for butchering and as a work bench. Harriet had it restored. Upon her death in 2005, the table was passed to her daughter, Helen (Hansen) Cochran.
