Jerome Stillson Obituary / 72562476
Dear Jessica,

Thank you for posting Jerome B Stillson's grave. Stillson has no living descendants, but I am a journalist and researcher interested in his life and career. If you are willing to transfer the memorial to me, I would gladly care for it. Otherwise, attached is his obituary from the New York Times, 27 Dec 1880.

With thanks, Elaine

Jerome B. Stillson, one of the best known journalists of this City, died at the St. Denis Hotel yesterday afternoon at 2:30. He had been suffering from Bright's disease of the kidneys since last June, and was confined to his room for three or four weeks past. His body was taken to Merritt's undertaking establishment, in Eighth-avenue, preparatory to its removal to Buffalo to-day. Mr. Stillson was born in Buffalo in 1841. During the latter part of the war he became a special correspondent for the World of this City, and rapidly rose to distinction as a journalist. When peace returned to the country he was made correspondent of the World in Washington, and in 1874 served as managing editor of that paper for a short term. He then became the Albany correspondent of the World, filling that position until 1875, when he went to Denver, Col., where he engaged in business in connection with Western lands. In 1877 he became attached to the staff of the Herald, his first notable productions in this capacity being a series of letters from Utah describing the evils of Mormonism. While engaged in this work he was shot at and wounded in Salt Lake City. Since then he has remained on the Herald staff, his last work having been done in Indiana during the campaign of last September. Mr. Stillson leaves no family. He was married about 10 years to Miss Whiton, of Piermont, N.Y., but she died a few years after the marriage.

RE: Clark Anson Miller (87515986)
Hi, you are very welcome.
About the missing death date, it happens quite often. Why? I guess either money or very often there are no close relatives left, or they have moved out of State.

Greetings Ingrid.

Do you know how the people in this memorial are related to each other? Also, do you know where any of them were born? Thanks!

RE: Robert Hunter McIlvaine #88396230

I'll be glad to put the change in that you requested.

To answer your question about researching Robert Hunter McIlvaine, I wasn't researching him. Just taking photos. I take a lot of photos of headstones. Since most of the memorials have already been posted to Find a Grave, I concentrate on posting the photos I take instead.

RE: Ann E. Miller
I'm rather new at this, I'd be glad to take over Ann E. Miller and George Benjamin Miller's memorials. George Benjamin is my direct ancestor. My number is 47260270. Do I need to do anything else?
Thanks, Phyllis
