Marjorie..... Thanks for checking the 2 Tombstone Books (could you give me their
names so I won't double check them at some later point). Appreciate your looking,
and ditto for the other items.
I live on the West Coast (CA) so it's a long trip to Dover, but I did spend 10 days
there several years ago. I've recently received two copy orders from the Dover
Archive, but I don't know where to tell them to look for this death notice and they
cannot do research. Long distance research isn't easy, altho much better than it
used to be.
I have several pages from Wright but I doubt if they include p113. I copied them at
Salt Lake, and one cannot copy an entire document.
I know Death Records are a problem almost everywhere in that time period, but one has
to hope that there has been a census of the stones in the correct cemetery where the
target person is interred (if one knows the "correct" cemetery, which I do not, in
the case of Cornelia (McIlvain) Hopkins). Might be Cool Spring Church.
Very much appreciate the help !
