RE: Obituary dubious Ok, I really messed Edith up! No, I didn't mess her up! Looks like the year of death on her marker isn't right! Obit states she died Dec. 6 in Phoenix, Ariz. The obit was published Jan. 18, 1956. I just double checked the Blade's obit listing & then I went to the obit on line & double checked the date on the page where I found her obit. Her obit was published Jan. 18, 1956! And it does say she died Dec. 6th!! Looks like her DOD was Dec. 6, 1955. Um - I'm not sure exactly how to handle this one. Maybe state somewhere that the year on the marker doesn't agree with when she died, but rather is the year she was buried? Maybe you can word that better. I found the obit Google's newspaper archives. Sharon
PVT David White: 58467758 He is the obituary for this soldier. David White, born April 4, 1844, enlisted June 1862 in Co. G, 68th Illinois Infantry. He re-enlisted in the Co. E, 94th Illinois Infantry and served until the end of the war. He participated in the Second Battle of Bull Run, siege of Vicksburg and other important engagements. At the capture of Mobile, AL, he was taken sick from exposure and died July 15, 1865.
The information you provided, goes to a different David White. There were 7 David Whites' who served in Illinois Units during the Civil War. You may wish to redo your Flower entry.
RE: Duplicate As per your request, I have deleted the duplicates. You might also wish to contact Cheryle Montgomery to ask her to check the birth date of Henry Grauerholtz, which I had listed as Dec. 6, 1841. Thanks, Judi
