(1) Wilhelm Bock's true name was Johann Heinrich Andreas Bock.
   Wilhelm was his "Spitz" or nick name.

(2) In Germany, Wilhelm's job was "Bahnwärter in Neustadt" or
railway signalman in the town "Neustadt".

(3) Wilhelm's father Johann Conrad was "Waldarbeiter", a wood cutter
or forest worker.

(4) From Eike Bock:  In the village Westerode by Bad Harzburg live
today many Bocks.  Westerode by Bad Harzburg is the nearest village
to Braunschweig. I think that this village is the right village (for
Wilhelm's home).
