PERSONAL MENTION (section of newspaper) pg. 4

The date this was published was 4 days after the death of William H. & Mary "Lena" Edwards Allee second son.

I have entered his burial location in the Saint Pauls Cemetery in Birds, Illinois - we do not know at this time the location of his burial, as his death certificate only lists that he was buried in Lawrence Co. IL. I tend to feel since other Allee family members are buried here, that the Saint Paul Cemetery would have been the cemetery his parents would have chosen. vjm

A special thank you to Flossie Price for this long forgotten bit of information on William H. Jr. vjm

The Saint Pauls Cemetery has been walked / read and is in print. There is no mention of a marker for him, either there never was one or through the years it has been lost or grown over. vjm
