I just returned home from Roatan, Honduras. I came across a cemetary there with a "Borden/Elwin family plot" consisting of 4 graves. I am a Borden and took pictures of the following tombstones:
Professor James T Borden
Drucilla G Borden
Babe Ruth Borden Elwin
Faith Mary Borden
There were Boddens in the cemetary also, though it didn't occur to me until later than Borden and Bodden might be of the same family line (with a pronunciation and spelling that changed over time on the island).
If my photos are of any interest, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com and I will send them to you. There is a photograph of Drucilla that appears on her tombstone.
FYI, I have since found the name of Babe Ruth Borden Elwin listed as "Babe Ruth Borden Elwis" on a website maintained by the LDS Church. It seems that their entry is faulty, because the photograph that I have clearly reads Elwin on the tombstone, not Elwis.
