A New Year’s gift. This morning I came across the headstone photo of my great-great-grandfather James Levens that a generous Find-A-Grave user had taken. The headstone has his and his wife Margaret’s death dates.

Previously, I had a tentative date of death of 1884 for James based on some information from a Schuylkill County history book. Those sorts of books are not known for their precise accuracy, so his actual date of death was still an open question.

Now, I know James died 23 Apr 1885 at around age 55. According to the headstone, Margaret died 22 Jun 1918 which matches her death certificate. They were buried in Brock Cemetery in Ashland, PA.

Happy New Year!
