bullet  General Notes:

NOTE: Unsure if the two unnamed children are children of James and Lucinda. Birth records indicate that Harold was the 4th child born to the couple, which makes one question the parentage of the two infants born in 1879, and buried in Lot 11, instead of in lot 10 where Lucinda, George and Harold were buried. On the 1900 Census, Lucinda stated she had 7 children, 5 living.
