I was in the process
of deleting mine, as I didn't see where he was to be buried and assumed it would be where his little boy is but I have now deleted it.

MEMORIAL 13426701

The name is Lily on tombstone and other records also the date is clearly on there and in other places. Remember the census is not always correct. Names were a lot of times misspelled and also dates incorrect. You had to find other more reliable sources.

RE: Clutters at Woodlawn Cemetery
Honestly, I couldn't tell you as I did not take the photos. I recorded the names from the records from a book years ago and then a member of the WVGS came along and took photos at the cemetery. I don't even know where they are located at, as my records only listed full names (sometimes), burial dates, age (sometimes), and sometimes place of death.

RE: Alfred Girton 135281803
Yes, the 3rd one I thought turned out to not be connected. Thank you for your help. I hope you can find out about Morgan. I'll check it too!

Alfred Girton 135281803
Thank you Melva ... I found it in Family Search. I also found his 1st wife's name. Did he also marry a 3rd time? Thanks for your help.

WB Girton
Hello Melva,
I'm aware of the identity of WB but I'm not positive he is buried there since he died in California and there are no dates on the stone. Do you happen to know for certain?

That appears to be Ethel marrying John W. Duffy with a son Clark Duffy. She was later found as Ethel Harlen living with a Claire Harlen on the 1930 census record but I don't think they were married. He was 27 and she was 40, but who knows. Strange things happen. Clarkn(misspelled)Duffy was with them.

Name: Clark R. Duffy
Birth Date: abt 1911
Birth Place: Dixon, Illinois
Death Date: 7 Aug 1934
Death Place: Chicago, Cook, Illinois
Burial Date: 10 Aug 1934
Burial Place: Dixon, Lee, Illinois
Cemetery Name: Oakwood
Death Age: 23

Residence: Chicago, Cook, Ill.
Father Name: John W. Duffy
Father Birth Place: Dixon, Illinois

Thank you so much.

Clark Marshall Girton, Memorial# 18336309
Hi again,
Maybe you can connect Clark Marshall Girton to his wife, Emma Floto Girton #18336332.
Dtr. Ethel Girton b. Dec 1885 in Iowa is with her father Clark Girton on the Jun 1, 1900 census for Palmyra Twp., Lee Co., IL. living with Clark's sister Maria Jane (Girton) Weisz.
There were two Dixon Sun newspaper articles in the Lee Co., Gen. Society index for Ethel Girton, 23 Apr 1901 and 18 Jun 1901 re: graduating from Sugar Grove School in Palmyra township.
I could not find anything further. She may have married but I did not find her in other indexes on the LCGS website.
