Grave obsessions

Chronicling America chronicles the Stanwood family
Friday night I continued my search for the Stanwood surname on the Library of Congress' web site, Chronicling America.  What an awesome site!  My great-great grandparents, Albert and Lavina (Bursley) Stanwood, appeared several times in the Princeton Journal - typically when visiting their daughter Georgianna (Stanwood) Cravens.  Here are some of my finds:

Albert & Lavina (Bursley) Stanwood visit daughter Georgianna, who is ill. This is curious - as Lavina died in 1920, and Albert was residing in Minneapolis at the time.
