Good catch! I added a note that should explain it and keep people from trying to "correct" it in the future.

Thank You
Hi Jan, thank you so much for the bio on Moses McIlvain. I have added it to his memorial. Do you have names of his children?
Thank you,

Hi, thanks for the bio of James. On the last paragraph regarding the kids, are you missing the info on Wm or did the person writing the info knew nothing about him?

Thanks for the quick response!

Do you know if the birthdate of 1749 comes from the baptismal record or is this date on the tombstone or calculated from the tombstone information?

I'm just trying to establish that the William Hilleker buried in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is the same Willum Hilliker referenced in the baptismal record.

thanks again,

Hello Jan,

I see where for William Hilleker you have his parents listed as Hendrick Hilleker and Jane Yerks. I was wondering what references you have that these people are his parents? I have seen conflicting information where another William Hilliker is listed with these same parents.

Also, where did you get the birth date of 1749 for William Hilleker?

Thanks so much for your time......I'm just trying to solve some inconsistances that I have in my tree.

Michael Hilliker.

The plaques are mounted on a low wall at the east end of Milam Park (near intersection of North Santa Rosa Street and West Commerce Street) near downtown San Antonio.
