Paul, this looks fine. Your statements all have sources. The bio presents itself neatly and clearly.
Your Sources could use a little filling out. I realize that you've stated the Census place in the bio, but I also think it should be mentioned in the Census citation. Your other citations should also be more specific as to place. The death Citation is it a death certificate or an index or something else? There are examples on this page
As for <br>: I know <br> works but the Wikitree recommended is <br />. And I agree, it's a pain every time you want a line break. The other way to get a line break is to put : (colon) at the beginning of the sentence, but it also creates an indentation.
It's interesting about the name spelling changing with that generation, glad you included that tidbit.
