The labeling in the photo below has a typo, it's 1869 NOT 2869! LOL! "1869" is what is on the tombstone and I was sure it was "1914" on the tombstone so that it would read "1869-1914". But according to all the Census records he was born in 1860 and I haven't found a death certificate yet for him which would indicate he died in 1911 before they started doing death certificates in 1913. I found the "1911" date from a book published in 1977 of Union County Cemetery surveys. The author could probably read the stone better back then so that, along with the missing death certificate, give me to believe that he died in 1911.


Leila Kelly 's tombstone just has her date of death so I still don't know her date of birth at this time.
