Is Jno W. Cole buried with his wife Sarah F. Thixton Cole? On the same tombstone?

Thank you,
Julie

RE: CHARLES AND CORA MINARD
Thanks for that information, Dean.

I did check the Illinois Death Certificates database (http://www.ilsos.gov/isavital/idphdeathsrch.jsp) but there are no entries for these people.

In general, I would tend to believe the dates on grave markers over obituaries or indexes of obituaries, as the markers are "written in stone." The markers must have been seen by survivors and any errors, I'd think, would have been corrected. I know personally that nowadays, markers are made from "proofs" that are approved by the purchaser prior to production.

With obituaries, one person writes them, and maybe the same person relays that obit to an editor at a newspaper, who relays the info to a typesetter. There's plenty of room for error. And in the case of this index, you add another person transcribing what they've seen in a newspaper to the index, and now another person transcribing it to computer formats. More room for error.

CHARLES AND CORA MINARD
Hi.

Would you mind sending me the links to the obituaries you mentioned in which the dates of death for both Charles and Cora are off by a year. I tried finding obits online but was unsuccessful. Thank you.

RE: Percy Mackay
Hi D,
You're welcome! Sorry the results weren't better. Seems that when I search in Section 68, many of the graves here are unmarked. Looked for 7 on Saturday and only found that 3 were marked.
