The burial card for Eleanor (Lena) Chittum was misspelled in the Hollywood Cem. office, under "Chillum," the two "t's" not having been crossed. In the death register, she was recorded as Lena "Chittman." She died at age 15 years, 9 months, 20 days of Cerebro Spi' Mennigitis.

Lena was originally buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia, Section 22 of Single Graves Area, Row 4, Grave 39.

There are no markers for her or her brother Rollin Linwood's graves, only the records in the cemetery office.
