"I'm reading old newspaper articles about the murder of the French family, and they are uniformly from 1855. I believe the 1854 death year is incorrect."
A closer reading of those newspaper accounts yields the fact that they were murdered c. October 1854, the bodies not discovered until April 1855, thus the 1855 dates on the newspaper accounts. Thanks for your interest. If you have any further data to be added to the memorial page for Aaron , please don't hesitate to pass it on to me.--Rick
