Thank you so much for the obit. Eve Still---I have in my tree would have been the daughter of Jeremiah Still. Jeremiah was a brother of one of my greats.
I photo's of Jeremiah's house in Alton and where the shoe shop once was. Along with his obit & such.
If you would like me to e-mail copies to you, you can e-mail me at
Again....A huge thanks for the obit.
I am confused by the dates on the tombstone--might check it out for myself with some chalk. See if the dates are correct.

RE: Benjamin Crane Hathaway in Brighton Cemetery
The link worked. I will try to get the obit on later today. Thanks. I have Still's in my family line. I think this one would have been a cousin, but without going back and looking I am not sure.
Thanks again. I love it when the memorials have obits.

Benjamin C. Hathaway
I think I am on the right track on his wife. Perhaps the tombstone was inscribed wrong or the tombstone read wrong. I can't make out the dates on the photo of Eva's tombstone.

Benjamin Crane Hathaway in Brighton Cemetery
I was wondering if you know anything about his wife.

I am researching Still's. When looking at Jeremiah Still's probate papers it mentions two grandchildren: Sophia Hathaway and Charles Hathaway.

I am wondering if Benjamin' s wife was Eveline/Evaline Still. I ran across a marriage record yet it doesn't say which Still he married:
HATHAWAY, BENJAMIN C to STILL, UNKNOWN L 1882-10-05 0160 00000364 MADISON.

The only thing that is confusing me and keeping me from saying this is her husband is the dates on Benjamin Hathaway's tombstone for Eva. As Eveline Still would have been born about 1859.

Charles Sawtelle
Bill, thanks very much for the photo of the stone of Charles Sawtelle. I'm going to accept the birthdate on the stone, which matches the VR of Vermont, rather than relying on the Social Security Death Index, which is two years off.
