Gravestone: Campbell Babies (no dates)
If you know anything about this stone, please contact Don & Mary Saban (email bad)
These children (two boys?) are buried next to:
Son of TA & AE Moore, died Aug 7, 1899, aged 10ys 10ms 18 dy

E-mail from Dwayne Moore (10 May 2011) - ggrandson of TA & AE Moore:
On your web page there is a request from Don & Mary Saban regarding the Campbell babies. I have tried to contact the Saban's but email address no longer functions. Anyway, the information is as follows: The Campbell babies are John Campbell b.1900 in Genoa and Myrna Campbell b.1902 in Silver Creek. Both died in 1902 (I believe). They were the children of Alexander Bennett Campbell and Ella Gertrude Moore Campbell. They are buried next to Charles Starr Moore b. 3 Oct 1873 in Ypsilanti, Washtenaw, Michigan and died 6 Aug 1890 in Silver Creek. Charles Starr was the youngest brother of Ella Gertrude and was the son of Thomas Andrew Moore and Abigail Eliza Kelly Moore (my ggrandparents). I'm not sure where the 1899 date came from as Charles Starr died at the age of 17.
