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.
