  • Date
    April 1904
  • Problems/Questions
    Problem: confirm this is actually G 2130 A; date of 1904 should be one year too early for G 2130; search further west? Cemetery 1200? // entry blank; description added by PDM based on PDM 93.93.24 (35 mm color slide from 1993 season); print of this photo mounted on card labeled G 1224 (see mounted print archive Box B1) must be incorrect?
