      William Henry Harrison Showers
      Birth 2 Jun 1858
      Michigan, USA
      Death 7 Jan 1892 (aged 33)
      Los Gatos, Santa Clara County, California, USA
      Burial
      Los Gatos Memorial Park
      San Jose, Santa Clara County, California, USA

      Died intestate and left an extensive Probate Record in Santa Clara County Superior Court. His very young widow, Flora Belle Main, was thereafter nickel-and-dimed by creditos, lawyers, undertakers, druggists, doctors, etc.

      William left a lot of medical bills for the treatment of a broken leg over a year that ultimately ended in the amputation of the leg. Death followed soon thereafter. Two doctors nevertheless charged $200 each for their treatment.

      Flora Belle inherited value home and land in Los Gatos. EP Main stepped in, as well as HH main to help Flora Belle post the appropriate surety bonds for Probate.
