I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Birth date for Sarah Ann Clark
The death certificate says that Sarah Ann Clark was born on December 13th 1835. Some one may have read this to mean the day was the 15 December 1835, I don't know.

On a sidse note there is a very nice research paer on the
Tomac burial grounds on if you go to their link. I has everyone listed that is buried init as well as information about the cemetery. There is a lot of Ferris's buried there. I don't know if you have seen that research paper on the Tomac burial ground. It's really good.
