If you find errors or corrections or additions of any kind, please inform me. Sometimes the pictures don't come out real clear and I transcribe as best as I can. Sometimes I just give up and hope to get back and try again.
If I have management of a memorial that you wish to have, message or email me and I will be glad to transfer management unless it is in my genealogy line. If that rarity happens, we'll discuss each situation.

I think the Birth Year for Kate Eason should be 1889, not 1869.
That would make much more sense when compared to her parent's birth years.
