Kilmer, Addie (Smith)...Lot 142, Sec 2, born 1838, died 1906......Letter in Book: 32610 John R, Royal Oak, Mich., June 5, 1959. Sexton, Burr Oak Cemetery, Burr Oak, Mi. Dear Sir, It was my privilege, last Saturday, to strew some flowers on the graves of my grandparents, Rev Gabriel and Sarah B Smith, and their daughter, Mrs Addie Kilmer, and her husband, Palmer Kilmer. But as I missed the grave of my cousin, Warren S Kilmer, who had, long years ago, been buried in the lot beside his parents. He had lived in Chicago where I had visited him in 1898. Then I moved to North Dakota, and lost track of his family. But in after years I had visited in Burr Oak, and noticed his gravestone in the old family lot. As I have no other relatives in the Burr Oak area, I'm asking if you can give me any information as to when, and by whom, the remains of Warren Kilmer were removed., and where they were taken. This might enable me to contact some of his descendants. I enclose stamped envelope for your reply. Permit me to express my appreciation of the well-kept appearance of the cemetery in the town where I was born, in 1877. Sincerely, D J Todd.....Note: Surname Smith also comes from the papers of Geneva Smith.
