RE: Jarvis P Stanford
Hi Gerald,

I'd be happy to look over Emma's death certificate, not sure I'll see it any better than you can...but more than happy to try. Thank you for her birthdate, I had the month and year but so glad we can complete it. So yes, go ahead and send me her DC to the email at the bottom of my profile page, OK? Happy we could work together to get these memorials done and honor them like we'd like to.

Annie :)

RE: Jarvis P Stanford
You're very welcome, I'm glad we got that cleared up. No, I'm sorry, James doesn't have a headstone or marker at this time. That makes me sad when I see that. I created a memorial for Emma and linked her to her parents. Would you have her birthdate? I have 7 April 1931 as her death date.
Please let me know anything else you may know or want to update, OK?

Annie :)

Hi Gerald,

I'm glad you brought my attention back to this memorial. Following some research, I'm convinced that the cemetery records (my only source when I created his memorial) are wrong. Most likely, his name was misread and transcribed incorrectly. Rather than Jarvis P., it should read James Porter Stanford. I located him on the Montana Death Index, located his parents and linked them, located marriage record and wrote a short bio for him. If you have more info, I'd be happy to add it. I could not locate a memorial for Emma to link them, as yet. Thank you again for your inquiry.

Annie :)

Obituary (please don't post on his memorial)
Villa Grove News June 6 1912

David Stanford passed to his reward on the evening of May 30th--Memorial Day, having experienced seventy five years of Earths joys and sorrows.

Mr Stanford was a native of Indiana but had resided most of his life in Illinois, and for about thirty years had lived in Douglas county. He was a farmer until 1892, in which year he engaged in mercantile pursuits in Old Villa Grove, which occupation he followed until advancing years compelled him to retire from active life.

Mr Stanford was married three times and was the father of sixteen children, his first wife being the mother of three and his second wife thirteen. Five of the latter are now mourning the loss of their father. Mrs Jennie Woodson and Mrs Katherine Wishard, of Appleton City, Missouri, Mrs Dora Bryan, of Champaign Illinois, and William Stanford and Mrs Bertha Anderson, of this city. His aged and faithful wife is also left behind together with four brothers and four sisters and a number of their relatives and friends.

During the war of the rebellion Mr Stanford served in the 36th Illinois Infantry, from which he was honorably discharged at the close of the hostilities.

In the year 1869 the subject of this sketch became a member of the Christian church, and it was under the auspices of that organization that his remains were taken to their last resting place on Sunday, June 2d, 1912. The services were held in the Christian church, Rev CH Scriven officiating, before a large concourse of mourning relatives and sympathizing friends.

Mr Stanford will be missed in Villa Grove. He was a man of sterling worth, he had firm convictions and the courage to live them.
