    There are some discrepancies in this memorial record.  The date ofbirth has the year 1877, instead of the year 1872.  Did Ms misread thedate,  taking the 2 of 1882 as a 7 to get 1877?  should be 1872].  Thedate of death given is Oct. 1, 1954, while several family genealogiesreport the date of death as 29 September 1954 (apparently from familysources, since they include other details like James' middle name,though otherwise undocumented).  Was 1 October 1954 the date of theburial?  There is no photo of the gravestone on this memorial for usto compare.
