Find a Grave Memorial #115107567 Dear Sir: Greatly enjoyed your Bio's on each of these: Ralph George Nichols, Kirby S Nichols, Elvira F (Safford) Nichols, Mary "Minnie" (Denton) Blinn, Lillian B (Denton) Dickinson; Daisy Frances (Denton) Cutting, Walter F Lee, & Hilda E Lee. I certainly do appreciated all your work.
As to, Ralph George Nichols, he would have been born in December of 1874 because he is in the 1875 New York census. [Note: census date is June 1, 1875] Therefore, your comment stating, "It has been suggested that he was born December 15, 1874. Stone gives year of birth of 1875." is acceptable unless you do want to clarify it a slight bit more by rephrasing to something like this, Stone provides year of birth as 1875, but Ralph's name is listed in the 1875 New York census along with his parents Peter age 37 and wife Elvira age 38 and his siblings: Jenny age 14, Lyoma age 10, Alfred age 3, and lastly Ralph listed as age 0. [ Note: looks like 6/12 ]
DBT, this is totally your choice on how you wish to address it. Leave it or tweak it a bit!
Again, thank you for your excellent research, Lovina
Re: Find A Grave Memorial# 117460237 Sorry to confuse you. The more I look at her seems she went by the surname Birmingham and not Drought. Her husband's obit confirms it. Not sure how you'd want to handle it.
Re: Find A Grave Memorial# 117460237 In the 1910 census she was listed as Anna Birmingham and was a step-daughter, in later years listed as Drought. Sisters all line up with the obituary in the 1930 census.
Thanks for the great work on find-a-grave! Regarding your memorial for Elizabeth Segen Kilian (146613996). Can you please tell me where you found her maiden name? She is my 4th great grandmother and I would appreciate any information you have on "Segen".
Smiles from Heaven Thank you so much- words can't express how honored I am to be the caretaker of these memorials. I know there are smiles from heaven today. I am very honored have the person My Grandmother called "Oppa August"'s memorials. His grandchildren adored him. You are awesome. God Bless :)
