    Notes 
    • A carpenter by trade, working on his own, or as an employee of the Jackson penitentiary. When my daughter, Zoe, was born in 1988, my grandparents offered me a crib that had been made by George G Byrne. It was lovely, but looked terrible by comparison with modern cribs (e.g. slats that were a perfect fit for catching a baby’s head), so I declined. While I never would have used it, I regret not having a sample of his handiwork.
