This is so nice to see a list of all the names of those who are at Hopewell Cemetery.
Thank you for your effort. The obituaries you offer to share are going to be helpful.
I am including one that you do not have. It is that of Maud Borden Patton. This is
the correct spelling of "Maud". It is hard to tell from the obituary, but she died in
Decatur, Ill. Also, I notice a mistake in the place of birth. She was born in
Crawfordsville, Ind. She told me.
Thanks again for what you are doing....Mary Patton)
