Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "The story of a poet: Madison Cawein" by Otto Arthur Rothert (Ayer, 1921), p. 250: "I was christened in the German Lutheran Church [of Louisville]. Its Book of Baptismal Records, then written in German, contains the following entry, here quoted in full: 'AD, 1865: On the 23rd of April, in the evening at 5 o'clock, there was born unto William Cawein and his wife, Christiana, nee Stelsly, a son [by] the name Madison Julius' . . . According to the Family Bible and other records, Cawein was born on the 23rd of March--not on the 23rd of April as recorded in this church book."
