Following are comments relative to the spelling of the artist's middle name, which sometimes is listed as Benton but which because of these entries has been changed to Brenton.
These comments are from Sandy Rowe:
I came across the name W. Brenton Boggs researching the name Ellen CARTER, and have noted the following conflicts:
# In the database "Washington, DC Marriages, 1826-50", she is listed as Ellen Williams Carter, and he is W. Brenton Boggs, m. 10/10/1842.
# In the database entitled, Encyclopedia of American Biography,
another individual is listed, George BRENTON Boggs, again with the 'R'
in the name - possibly a son or a nephew, given the middle name. Date of
birth: Jan 8, 1844, in Somervill
