(Baxter would enjoy hearing from anyone, especially descendants of the Kilver family, who might be able to add to the biographical material that we have on Henry J. Kilver and the Kilver family. Baxter would also love to see copies of any photographs of Henry J. Kilver, which may have survived the years, added to his Find A Grave site for all to see.)
