lol
Had forgotten I'd taken those photos!!

Glad you did take the photo because there's a slight mis-transcription there  ;)

Glad I didn't transcribe them.... hehehee

**If there is a mis transcription for a headstone, please contact me to fix.
Thanks,

The error is easy to see in the transcription but can be compared to the photograph to verify  ;)

Headstones are sometimes sources of wrong dates. They are done often well after the event and errors can occur.

This family has been so incredibly easy to trace using Google & Family Search that I'm really surprised that you haven't already been able to trace the family yourself (according to a post on another forum you've been looking since at least 2014 and at that time there were several descendants still alive).

Thanks for your help.  I'm glad you were able to find the information with such ease, but it is a lot harder to actually find a contact for a living member of the family, which is what I am trying to do, as I am hoping that photos that were swapped are still in existence.

Thanks everyone!  I hope this might lead me one step closer to a living member of the family.
