I am not real clear on the proper name of William Henry Brugh.

I believe his name at birth was  William Henry Brugh.

Later he was known as Walton Henry Brugh.

Also at some point he decided to start spelling his surname Brough.

I believe Brough may have been the original spelling of the surname before Heronimus Brugh left Germany for America.

Likewise I don't know if the name Woodson belongs to him or not.

Alpha Jane Johnson was the 4th wife of Walton Henry Brough.

His first wife was Mona Blanche Bobbitt.

His second wife was his step-sister, Maude Bowling.

His third wife was Mary Bridges.

Walton and Alpha Jane  had one child together. A daughter named after Walton's mother, America Jane.

The cemetery marker for Walton Henry Brough incorrectly list his birth year as 1883. It should read 1887.
