I am being told that this William Dodman is actually William b. 1821 -
d. 1875, wife Mary DeGraw b. 1822 - 23 - 26? Which I am currently researching.

My problem is that the headstone for this William Dodman in question states - he died 19 Jul 1855, 56 yrs. old. So birth is est. at 1799. His wife R.I.P. beside him & has only her 1st name, which is Mary!!!!!!! Mary's death took place abt. 12 Apr 1834, Mary's age at time of death was 52, so I have est. birth abt. 1782.

Death probably took place Kent County, Ontario, Canada. Since the headstone lays in place here in Sherman Cemetery.

" I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT A MISTAKE OF SUCH MAGNATUDE HAS BEEN MADE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

So my question for this post is - " WHOM IS THIS WILLIAM DODMAN? "

Thank You Very Much For Looking At This Post

After being at the library today researching these 2 people on Ancestry Library Edition I found out this information. From Web: Canada, GenWeb Cemetery Index, Sherman Cemetery,
Thamesville, Ontario. William Dodman b. 1799, age 56, death date 1855. The information within this post stands correct. And these 2 people are not my William Dodman & Mary DeGraw!!!

So Once " AGAIN WHOM ARE THESE PEOPLE? "

Thank you very much for taking time with this post!!!!!

Yours Truly
Jeff
