  • clock In progress Review has been in progress. Copy edits done. Anne (talk) 19:29, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Date and length fine. Photo licensed. Hook cited and correctly formatted (minor tweak). For article, did general copy edits, added info/refs for mid/later life. Some of other refs don't have access dates, although that may not be mandatory for DYK. NRHP listings AGF. I'm a proponent and contributor to Find A Grave; however, in this case, I'm not certain about the reliability of the information. The contributor indicated that his first wife Florence died in 1907, but we have a newspaper article indicating that she had died by Dec 1903. I've contacted the Find A Grave contributor for you and await a response. QPQ apparently pending. Anne (talk) 20:55, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I believe that either the database is incorrect or Janice has the wrong Florence White. She didn't send a source for Clarence. I would proceed cautiously. Anne (talk) 12:49, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Just checking in. Anne (talk) 17:11, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
  • In the interest of moving this forward, I edited the article, removing some family-history-type detail that was sourced only to and/or primary sources (such as census records). The newspaper item indicating that Clarence Ferris White filed a probate petition for the estate of Florence Adelaide White in 1903 is a pretty solid indication that she died then, not a few years later. --Orlady (talk) 16:17, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The primary thing that was pending was QPQ. Anne (talk) 01:33, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
  • This isn't a self-nom, so QPQ is not required. --Orlady (talk) 04:35, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting keep.svg If the reviewer says this was waiting only for QPQ, which isn't required, I'm marking this as approved. If someone wants to insist that either the creator or nominator should provide a QPQ even though it's not required, I'll happily donate one of the reviews I've done without having a QPQ obligation. --Orlady (talk) 22:24, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Thank you, Orlady. Real world issues have kept me from addressing this. Cbl62 (talk) 00:27, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
