At the office in Washington Cemetery, there is a set of ledgers that list births in chronological order, giving the decedent's address and the cause of death, the name of the burial society and possibly additional facts. That may provide information now missing from an old, eroded gravestone.I'd like to visit the next time I'm in the area! For one thing, I'm wondering if his wife would be buried in the same cemetery. She re-married twice after his death, and I'm not sure of the spelling of the last name of her last husband.
