Name in RecordDescription of error or additionMy Name
Spencer,
Henry & Eva Amelia
The actual last name of these individuals was Purchase (Henry Spencer Purchase and Eva Amelia Purchase) and they were brother and sister, the headstone was erected by their parents James & Rose Purchase. Henry was my grandfather.
(See photo - note the inscription at bottom of headstone).
James Purchase
Manuel The date of death for Mary Eliza Manuel (wife of Titus W. Manuel) is incorrect. According to his will of 1915 he left his household furniture, monies, among other things to his beloved wife Mary Eliza. If this is the case according to her stone she would have been only 4 years old in 1915, by subtracting 1992-81=1911 and refering to the will. Terri
