Calculator for Grave Stones
Here is a nice page to help calculate the proper dates of birth if you do not have one.
Just want to help. I use it often.

Note Paragraph 7
Be aware of when the calendar was changed from Julian to Gregorian in the country for which you are performing the calculation. See the change from Julian to Gregorian calendar by country.

RE: James EdwinLyle & wife Mary Neal Lyle
According to her death certificate her maiden name was Neill - however I only find other records that say Neil, and sometimes Neal.

You seem to know Mary's (#25455224) maiden name (Rodgers), is there any way to link her to parents or siblings?

Sidney Horn 24575918
Hello Michael,
I've been researching Sidney Horn's family and have learned that when she died her legal name was Johnston.
Her first husband, Amos Swart died in the service during the Civil War. Her second husband was George W. Moninger and her third was James Johnston. Both Mr. Moninger and Mr. Johnston died before Sidney did.
I have a copy of Sidney's death record if you'd care to have it for your records.
Thanks very much!
Best regards,

Robert Simpson Memorial
Hello Michael,
Unfortunately, when they merged your memorial for Robert Simpson (1797-1875), they left him in the wrong cemetery. The large stone in Oak Spring Cemetery appears to be only a cenotaph.

Fortunately, someone found his actual tombstone in the right cemetery; please see 142898304.
