Questioning birthdates for Sarah and Edgar Hilliard
I received an email questioning the birthdates on Edgar B. Hilliard and Sarah Jane Hilliard Sturgeion. if you would look at the photo of the headstone of Edgar my date is correct.

Also if you would look at the headstone of Sarah Jane Hilliard Sturgeon you would notice that the date on the headstone is 1895 (not the 1878 written on the find a grave Biography). You need to contact this person to correct Sarah's biography.

Thank you!

Lydia! Sorry, Lydia Silfven.
I have another photo request for an Anna and got my wires crossed on that name.

Carl A. Silfven
Hello, dfilpus--

I just added a headstone photograph for Carl Silfven, and I'll be adding one for Anna in the next few days, as soon as I get it cropped.

Are you any relative of these two? My great-great-grandfather was a friend of Mr. Silfven through their temperance organization in Hancock and a customer of his photography studio.

RE: Silfven - Holy Cross
I couldn't find her tombstone this morning. I knew there was 2 Crypt 1, Tier A at Moss. I didn't know there are 3 Crypt 1, Tier A. I added she tombstone.

RE: Photo for Leo Wagoner
Thank you. I thought I would have to wait some time before sending a request for Grace's photo. Leo is my first cousin, and they were favorite relatives of mine.
