You are correct that the William Aldrich buried in Bristol is not his father. His parents were in MA and I will see if I can locate them.
Thanks for catching that mistake and I have taken them off from Carl's burial.

Nice detective work on Infant Whittier. I had Washington in my family file because he was married to a Hallock but missed him when searching for the parents. I do believe that you are correct and am linking him to his parents in Colorado.
Thanks, Alan Lathrop, Bristol VT

I assume the M. was not a middle initial and that Martineau is her maiden name as her parents were Martineau. I just took out the M for her middle initial.
Made the connections for you.

Hi - I just sent you the updated information for this grave. I had received a note that one of the other many Fairview Cemeteries in Oklahoma was not the right one, so I am locating him here which is the right one. I found a story mentioning George H. Lee.(he is my great great grandfather's brother)
WHEN THE ROLL IS CALLED UP YONDER
"The first man buried at Fairview was George Lee. The neighbors dug the grave. In an early day the bodies were
laid out at home by friends, washed and dressed and often buried the same day.
"My mother had her burial clothes ready for 10 years in her trunk."
"The early settlers made the coffins and if things work out I plan to have mine made from a tree that grew on the
first piece of land I owned. I have it cut, sawed and stored away--but I'm in no hurry to use it!"
The road in old Day County is still rough. Oil wells dot the countryside in Roger Mills and Ellis counties.
Windmills are still indispensable. Oil companies are building good new roads but they must follow the old
pioneer trails--up on the ridge.
The bouquet of prairie flowers reminds us that dreams can still come true by following the trail that Dora and
George Gantz traveled. Their success secrets were hard work, honesty, frugality and trust in the Lord.
We'll see you at the Grand Picnic, George!

I have tried several times to change the death date and it keeps going back to the 18th. Will keep trying.

Hello, I made the correction and added the links. If you are a relative and want it transferred, let me know. Homer
I don't have a camera to take a better photo, but the information is on the McNairy History website, www.mcnairytnhistory.com
