RE: Mount Olivet
I am guessing but usually the tombstone is correct. So for some reason or another the cemetery placed Edward on the paperwork instead of William. That's all it was, a clerical mistake.

RE: Mount Olivet
The only problem.... is we still have no idea if it is William or John who died in Waco Texas...

And yes, the cemetery computers can only be accessed from the lobby kiosks and not over the internet.

RE: Mount Olivet
This may not help out to solve the mystery but it is all I could find out. Although the grave marker has a Private William M. Clair on it, the cemetery record has no record of a William M. Clair. They do have a John Clair who died on the same date, at the same age and in the same city of Waco TX as being buried on that lot.

So William M Clair and John Clair are one and the same. the question is.... who is he really???

Edward Clair died on 22 Oct 1918 in Waco, Texas. He was 26 years old at death and died of pneumonia - The Influenza Epidemic of 1918.

John M. Clair died on 08 April 1916 at the approx. age of 68 years old. He died in Crown Point, Indiana of hypostatic pneumonia.

I did notice I placed the wrong burial info on the photos. The actual grave location is Section 28 Lot 86.

RE: Shoops Cemetery
No photos to be found of Daniel or JJ. I'll post a photo of the empty space and the large monument they put in place of the removed graves...
