Buster's Obituary":

James Sylvester Shrider

James Sylvester Shrider was born Dec. 29, 1904 in Toledo, Ohio and died Monday Nov 25, 1907. Age two years 10 months and 27 days.
He leaves a father, mother and little sister to mourn his untimely departure from this home.
James was a bright boy and gave every promise of becoming a useful man. A fatal disease seized his little body and took him away.
He has not lived in vain if he has taught this father and mother some of his trustful tender spirit and more of the sacredness of the home and it's relations and responsibilities.

** This was a hand-written obituary, found pasted in Levi Shrider's funeral book. It is typed just as it was written. It is not known who it was written by or if it was written to be his obiturary or to be read at his funeral


NOTE: Even though he died before she was born my mother spent a lifetime wanting to know where her baby brother was buried and hoping he had a headstone. David Mason, a cousin I found on the internet, helped me with my research and found him for us!! Sad to say, we discovered there was no headstone. The family soon put money together and ordered a headstone to be created for him. The headstone was set in January of 2006 and my mother passed away in March of 2006. I was so glad we were able to find him and get his headstone placed while she was still here to see it for those things were very important to her.
