Cemetery for Austin Fitch (81269944) and Ida Fitch (81269535) I am researching plot information for a photo request for Austin Fitch (81269944) and, according to records of the St. Louis Genealogical Society, Austin and his wife Ida (81269535) are buried at Lake Charles Memorial Park, 7775 St. Charles Rock Road, not at Oak Hill Cemetery, 10301 Big Bend Boulevard.
Thank you so much for the photo you posted of Mary and her husband Samuel Shotwell Hutchins.
I am a little confused though. This picture appears to have been taken in their older years. According to records, Mary and Samuel were married in 1873 and Mary married Horace David Perdue around 1880. If this is true then Mary would have been 23 when she and Samuel married and he would have been 25. She would have been 30 when she married Horace.
If I were to guess the photo looks more like a photo taken in her 50's or 60's.
I am wondering if this is for sure Samuel Shotwell Hutchins in the photo or if it could be Horace David Perdue instead.
I want to Thank You so much for the photo of Alice Hubbard. She is the great grandmother of my sister-in-law who is quite excited that I have found a lot about her family tree. Thank You also for setting up Alice's memorial page on findagrave.com. I and my sister-in-law appreciate all the information on the memorial page. It's exciting to get more than just dates and places.
Townsend Family-Rossland & Nelson BC By the way, Helen Alma Ridley Townsend married Stuart John Terhune in Nelson BC on 02 Dec 1935 (1935-09-432136, B13771, not online as yet). They must have moved out of province, because neither is listed in BC Archives as dying here, at least not prior to 1992.
Edith Gray Re your S.A.C. to remove Vercoe from her name:
Please check the marriage certificate referenced in my earlier message (and below). It appears she may have been baptised with her mother's maiden name as one of her middle names. Can you think of a reason why she would sign line 28 as "Edith Gertrude Vercoe Townsend" if it wasn't her name?
