|James Pratt||Elizabeth (Beynon) Phillips Bishop|
I would be interested in your source for the biographical information on this memorial (no. 98988833)
Elizabeth was my great-grandmother's sister. I have a version of the story that my grandfather gave, around his 90th birthday in 1994: That his father (James W Pratt), mother (Mary Beynon) and "another man" (Clifford Phillips) all came to America about 1902 bound for St Louis, having something to do with the World's Fair that was to take place in 1904. Phillips died, James and Mary married, and settled in New England. My grandfather (William Clifford Pratt) was born in Plainfield, NH in 1904.
The truth as I have uncovered so far:
Mr & Mrs C.C.Phillips immigrated in 1902 on the SS Ivernia,departing Liverpool on 5 April and arriving at Boston 24 April, together with Mary Beynon, sister of Mrs. Phillips. Final destination was to be Grand Rapids, Michigan. James Pratt sailed from Liverpool on the SS Saxonia on 24 March 1903, arriving Boston on 3 April. Final destination was Windsor, VT, to join "friend CC Phillips" to whom he had sent a draft for $500. James and Mary were wed on 28 October 1903 in St Paul's Church, Windsor, with Mr & Mrs Phillips as the witnesses. I have not yet found the connection between James Pratt and Clifford Phillips, except that Phillips' mother was from near Norwich, as were all the Pratts. After the 1903 marriage record, I find no further record of Clifford Phillips.
The reference to St Louis that you posted on the memorial is sending me back there to look, although your date is too early. I would appreciate any more clues.

For Sarah Shepard Tenney I found middle name in book The Tenney Family 1904 by M J Tenney. I find some of my Tenney information in that book and using other online resources.

Thank you for all of your help! I will study the link you sent to me and learn more about memorials.

Also visited my Mother's, Father's, 2 brothers Norman and Theodore, Grandfathers Lorenzo Balch, Mothers brother William G. Balch, Great Grandmother and Great Grandfather Britton all in Ascutney.

Wow, beautifully done! Your photo additions to Ernest Buealmont's memorial were wonderful and very much appreciated, thanks.

I can't change the date.
His federal stone, his headstone, and his Memorial Page all reflect the same birth date.

If you don't mind, I will check with Wally's sister or wife before I change it.
