Hello - Sylvia Maurine Heslet was my mother. She is the granddaughter of Silvia Stone who married Lewis Heslet. I do not know where Silvia Stone Heslet is buried, however I do have photo's of her and birth and death information. How are you related?

Thank you for your note on George Whitcraft. I am aware of the 1913 biographical sketch that you referred to, but have not used it because there are some inaccuracies in it. For example, George Whitcraft was not born in Ireland. He was born in 1801 in Pennsylvania, most likely Chester Co. His parents immigrated in the latter half of 1800 with two children, Thomas and Maria/Mary. The rest of their kids were born in the US. They were in Washington Co., PA by 1804 when their son Isaac was born, and stayed there till about 1810 or 1811 when they moved to eastern Ohio. John Whitcraft was naturalized in Jefferson Co., OH in 1812.
Another problem with the bio is the claim that George Whitcraft served in the Mexican War. I have checked at length with the National Archives, and the only George Whitcraft on their list to serve in that war came from Wisconsin. I have the pension file, and it he has different birth and death dates and a different wife than our George. Clearly not the same man.

I added several other Whitcraft memorials for photos that I'd taken. They are Bessie, Carrie, Dene, Francis, Hazel, Ivan, Mary, and Samuel.
Would you like me to transfer them to you?
Re your message: "I cannot read this stone but I believe these dates are wrong or this is the wrong info for this stone.
James Iliff who married Grace Stevenson on 9-5-1797 was born 1-7-1769 and died 10-11-1844.
They had seven children: Elizabeth #39968419, Sarah #20197551, Charity #39968355, Lydia #39968386, William #39968412, Mahlon #39968404, and James III #39968509."
You sent me alot of Iliff info and I made he corrections per your info. Perhaps the info was for a different James Iliff? Maybe the wrong photo was posted to the memorial? I posted the memorial from an old cemetery list. If you subtract the age on the stone from the date of death, the birth year is correct.
The James married to Rebecca was born in 1818, therefore cannot be the son of the James who died in 1811. Please recheck your info and let me know what you find. I may have to undo some of the changes. Thanks.

Aunt Marian was married to my Uncle Dalton who is my grandmothers brother.
Are any of Mary and Ray's children still living?
