    Wife of my 2nd cousin twice removed.

    RLB - I am unable to determine what day
    she was buried.
    "Descendants of Robert Lashley" has her
    date of death as November 5, 1979, as does the
    main body of the Find A Grave Memorial data.
    However, the obituary section is from the Peoria,
    Illinois Journal Star and is dated November 6,
    1972. It says "Mrs. Emma L. Young, 67, of 3413
    W. Proctor, died at 10:04 a.m yesterday at her home."
    Which would be November 5, 1972. The obituary
    goes on to say the funeral will be tuesday.
    In November 1979, the 5th was on a Monday.
    In November 1972, the 5th was on a Sunday.
    Given her date of birth as 1912 and her age as
    67 at time of death, she would have died in
    1979 as first listed.
    The obituary is confusing to say the least. The date
    was probably Nov 6, 1979 and not Nov 6, 1972. In
    November 1979 the 6th was a Tuesday. Why does
    the obituary say the funeral "will be" Tuesday, and
    not "today". Possibly the funeral was held the following
    Tuesday, November 13th? It appears sime of the
    relatives would have to travel a distance.
