    • Part of letter from Kathryn's brother Jim in 1994:
      Section 18 is north of Rogers Road on
      the right as you enter from the street. Lot 105 is 11 rows to the right of the entrance way and
      two headstones in from the fence. You can even see it from the street. It says:
      ATHERTON
      IN LOVING MEMORY
      THOMAS ATHERTON
      DIED APRIL 6, 1916
      AGED 62 YEARS
      HIS DAUGHTERS
      ELLEN ATHERTON
      DIED AUG 23 1957 - AGED 68 YRS
      CHARLOTTE ATHERTON
      DIED JAN 28 1968 - AGED 79 YRS
      And there is a small space, slightly larger than the spaces between the other letters on the
      tombstone in the sixth line between the 'R' and the 'S' in "DAUGHTERS". So, lines 6-8
      (without that 'S') were probably added in 1957 and lines 10 and 11, along with that 'S' were
      probably added in 1968. Or that's how I figure it, anyway. [1]
