In Riverview Cemetery, Louisiana, Pike County, Missouri, there is a burial for a Harold Henshaw, born Feb 28 1903, died Mar 11 1903.12  He is buried in the same cemetery where William and his parents are buried, and could have been named after William's brother Harold.13  But since William's parents already had a son named Harold, it seems unlikely that this burial would have been another of their sons.  All of William's other siblings were still unmarried in 1903, but William was married and perhaps still living in Pike County, Missouri at that time.  It seems probable that this Harold was a son of William & Kathryn.13
