RE: The Tillmans
Thank you, the photo of the headstone should answer the question.

RE: Steven Hillman 70926077
Hello, D.W.,

Steven Tillman's birth year was 1804. Looking at his Birth Month (August) and Death Month (January 1882), the age of 77 years on his inscription is correct. If his birth year was 1805, then was only 76 years when died.

Just food for thought. He's a very distant cousin of mine( by marriage); in fact, so distant I cannot even calculate the relationship. I can see that you have sent a great deal of time and effort into the memorials you have created and I will, of course, be content with what you decide.

Have a great day

RE: The Davises
It's no problem for me to go look one day when I'm off work. You've got my curiosity up now, but it wouldn't be the first time I've seen spouses separated like this. My great grandparents were separated and when he died first he was buried in New Pursley by his parents and years later when she passed away she was buried at Dresden and my grandfather (one of her sons) is buried beside her.

RE: The Davises
I will have to double check but I don't believe that they are buried by each other. He is in the newer addition that backs up to a wooden fence in a residential area and I believe she is in the main area, by the main area I mean the area that can be seen from the baseball fields. When I get a chance I'll go out and try to locate it again, from the other stones in the background of her picture.
