|Sally Scheer||RE: Florella Phelps additional|
Every family I have researched has at least a few children who didn't make it out of babyhood and many mothers who died in childbirth or shortly thereafter. The 1918 Flu Epidemic was a worldwide disaster that killed an unexpected number of young folks in the absolute prime of life. Florella was only 24 and left a very young son. The Flu killed more soldiers than World War I did.

thank you so very much for taking the time to shoot and post the photo of his headstone.

How fitting that a professional musician and teacher should be the one to take the picture for me! I'm a graduate of UofM music school and taught both publicly and privately for many years before retiring to work for our family business. Many thanks again.

Thanks for the photo of my Aunt Florella (Olla) Potter Phelps' stone. She was a victim of the 1918 Flu Epidemic that killed so many young people. My mother was 6 years old when Olla died and she remembered and talked about her big sister nearly to the day of Mom's death at age 98.

Here's what I found. The Pittengers had 5 plots numbered 7 thru 11. Mary, Minnie and John were in plots 7,10 and 11. The plots 8 and 9 were for daughters Lillian and Effie of which I have found no trace of.
If you found 2 Wm Youngs buried there, I would guess one of the daughters was married to Wm and her spouse and son are there in 8 and 9

|Grave Walker||RE: Frances Pavela|
I didn't see him. What were his birth and death dates, I can see what I can find out.
|Grave Walker||Francis Pavela|
Good news! I while back you put in a request for Francis Pavela's grave stone. As of last year, it was reported that he wasn't in the stated plot or section. Today I found him! Not in time to get the photo request credit for it, but none the less I shall post the photo for you! I have to cook supper, after that I shall post the photo for you.
