If you want a transfer please let me know.
I would rather transfer memorials than do edit corrections, although edit corrections are okay and I am willing to process them.
The only memorials I won't transfer are my relatives.

You've provided some photos of the gravestones for Lewis but the memorial doesn't identify in which cemetery his grave is located. Do you have that information?

RE: Congdon/Tallman
Hi Ann, good questions. If you zoom in on the photo of the stone you took, I am 99% certain the birth year is 1846 and not 1816 (there is too
much space between the 8 and the next number for it to be a 1 and when zooming in you can see it's a faded 4). The photo of the stone that kat took shows that Frances was 28 years old (words inscribed) when she died in 1874, so that aligns with the 2 stones both being for the same
Frances who was born in 1846.

In the 1850 Census, Frances is living with her parents, Susan and Asa Congdon in Delavan along with her brothers, Thomas and John. Frances is listed at 4 years old, also matching the 1846
birth year.

Asa, the father, died in 1850 per his headstone. In the 1860 census, Susan is living in Richmond, Walworth, Wis, with her sons Thomas and John and her daughter, Frances who is 14, again aligning with the birth year of 1846. Susan's birthplace of Rhode Island is consistent and Frances' birthplace of Wisconsin is consistent.

In 1870 Susan Congdon, Frances' mother, was living with her son-in-law, Charles Benson Tallman, her daughter Frances and their child, Charles Monroe Tallman, who is 2 years old. On the transcription of the record, Frances appears as Frank, but the record shows she is a female, keeping house and was born in Wisconsin, the same as on the 1850 census. Susan Congdon, her mother, shows as keeping house and shows as having been born in Rhode Island, the same as the 1850 census. They are living next door to a Thomas Congdon, his wife and children, one of whom is named Asa, after his grandfather, who was Susan's husband, Asa, and the father of Frances. As above, Thomas is Susan's son and Frances' brother.

Frances dies in 1874. In the 1880 census, her husband Charles Benson Tallman is remarried to an Isabelle Kimball and Frances' and Charles' son, Charles Monroe Tallman is living with them. He is 11, which aligns with him being 2 in the 1870 census with his parents.

In the 1880 Susan is living with Thomas and his family and she is listed as Thomas' mother, again, having been born in Rhode Island.

The Congdons and Tallmans all living together and next door to each other, plus birth years and places all work out to be the same Frances.

I hope this helps and that you might agree she is one and the same. Thanks very much for helping to unravel this situation, Ann.
