William filed with Des Moines for a correction on birth certificate from "E." to William Carl. Original certificate has “Edward Bunyard”. Said he lived at 5th and Scott at the time.
The copy I have of birth certificate issued 22 June 1942
Were your parents married at the time of your birth? (We do not have single parent births, prior to July of 1995.)”
I am not sure why but I believe William got a corrected birth certificate to match his name. William already had a social security card by 1937. A Bunyard aunt got a delayed birth certificate in Iowa. I wonder why Bill bothered as it didn’t seem to cause a problem with employment, buying a home, government, etc. so perhaps he was pushed to do so in order to get a life insurance policy. 

Were your parents married at the time of your birth? (We do not have single parent births, prior to July of 1995.)”
