Yes. I sent you what is printed in the book. The information is only as good as the stone that is read and the person reading an old stone. I don't know if I would be able to read the stone any better these years later. I know that a relative of mine that had died in 1894, her stone was misread. It is very worn. I really had to work at reading it and I knew when she died. The people reading the stones didn't know what they should say when they read them. Mistakes were made, unintentional as they were. Are you sure that James Breckenridge listed at Hayes is the same person? I could possible check local newspaper accounts or check to see if there was a will recorded for a death date. The cemetery in question is not far from me, about 5 miles. My husband has relatives buried there including a sister and his parents. I will tell you that those old stones there are very worn. Would you like me to check for further information for you to make sure of the dates? Shirley
