Sources:


[1]Family Bible of H. B. and L. A. Kanouse, Nelson &
Phillips' Superfine Edition, New Devotional and Practical Family
Bible, New York: Nelson & Phillips, 187-, original in possession of
David E. Kanouse.
[2]Gravestone inscription, Oakland Memorial Park Cemetery.
[3]Passaic Co., N.J. marriage records, A:28.  The marriage date in the H.
B. Kanouse family Bible is March 1841, but this date was entered many
years after the event, probably not by Horace or Lydia.
[4]The H. B. Kanouse family Bible records Lydia Ann Laroe's birth
date as 24 Nov 1821, and her gravestone shows it as 11 Nov 1821.  There
is little basis for choosing between these dates.
[5]Kaufman Co., Texas marriage records, vol. 1A (as transcribed); the H.
B. Kanouse family Bible has the marriage date as 24 May 1868, and her
obituary has the date as 23 May 1868.
[6]Terrell Daily Tribune, 11 Feb 1935; the Horace B. Kanouse Bible gives
the same date but gives the place of death as Terrell, TX; her gravestone
erroneously gives the date of death as 12 Feb. 1935 [transcription
provided by Justin M. Sanders of Knoxville, TN 18 Nov 1993].
[7]Conflicting entries in H. B. Kanouse family Bible show the date as 8
Sep. 1886 or 21 Sep. 1887.
[8]Terrell Daily Tribune, 3 Oct 1922 (afternoon), obituary of M. L.
Kanouse.
