bullet  General Notes:

In Scotland, my mother somehow heard of an opening for a baker and told her mother about it. Grandma Briggs told William he had to go and apply for that job, and he got it. William took Mom aside and told her he ought to bop her one for that!

He became a master baker, and as an apprentice in Scotland, delivered rolls before he went to school.
