Biographical data
Name: North, William George  
Born: 1861
Died: 1909
 
Notes:
Steve Mann gives date of birth as 1860-1861, and reports that his death was recorded in the first quarter of 1909, so his death was either early in 1909 or late in 1908. Land and Water (22 Dec. 1883, p.409) has 'G.W. North', which I presume was an error for 'W.G. North'.
