Week 43– OOPS! George A. Bough (1806 – 1856)
Although, there have been many oops over the years of my genealogical research that required pruning and other measures, I decided to look at what appears to be an oops when looking at the cause of death for George Anthony Bough, the patriarch of the Bough family. From embarrassment to tragic. George’s cause of death was a fall. Oops there it is.
George Anthony Bough died on April 3 1856 on St. Croix, Danish West Indies now the US Virgin Islands.
