There are conflicting dates among the cemetery record, an original cemetery transcription, and the engraved stone in the photograph.

1) The Kahbakong cemetery database record shows: "Died: 15-Sep-1881" This is a transcription from a handwritten index card into an Excel workbook.

2) A different transcription record shows: "1804 - 15-Sep-1881, 78 yrs, 7 mos, ? days" This transcription was most likely done from an original death certificate on file in the Chisago county courthouse.

3) The engraved stone shows: "DIED Sept 17, 1884"

OPINION: Without having the opportunity to view the original headstone purchase order, it is only a guess the 1884 year engraved was a mistake.

NOTE: During a telephone conversation on 11-Jun-2012 with Chuck Rose of Stillwater, MN, he said the wife of Chester Scovill was Abagail Smith Scovill. The 1880 US census record supports his information.

He also stated the middle initial should be W instead of L. The Kahbakong cemetery association database shows the middle initial L, whereas the name on the headstone is not engraved with any middle initial. The census record also does not record a middle initial.

Chuck also stated that the Scovill family goes back into the 1700's in Connecticut. Knowing this, another Chester Scovill buried in the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hamden, CT is probably a relative to this Chester Scoviel.
