    Notes 
    • 5/31/01 srf
      Emily Hills Aasted has a photo of Julia Ann Richison Larkin or Mary Eleanor Larkin and Edgar Daniel Larkin.

      NOTES: Reported to be a tiny woman, who was very sweet. Like some other ladies of that era, she is remembered for washing her hair in listerine, and using alot of lavender perfume. She is buried in the same grave as her husband and son in Sunset View Cemetery, 101 Colusa Ave, El Cerrito, Adult J, Row 12, Grave 83. She had 2 children, and moved with husband to Tampa, FL in 1874. (See Biography in husband's notes. Her son wrote, ". . . Mother and we boys did not like Florida at first; but we were willing to stay on Father's account, mother worked hard, and saved the pennies. She deserves all credit for her patient, loving care of father, and the close and careful economy she practised . . . God Bless them! Their life has been one continous sacifice for their children . . ." It is said that when her husband died in 1912, she sold all their property in Tampa (apparently they had acquired a great number of orange groves there) and took a trip around the world.

      The Sumset [sic] View Cemetery re'c her ashes on 16 Jan 1940 from Fairmont Crematorium, Denver Colo. They cremated for LAW Cemetery in Colorado Springs.

      SOURCE: Death certificate from El Paso County, Colorado, gives her death date & pl, age at death, BD & state, father's name, spouse name, cause of death "Old Age" and where she lived at death (with her son Justin L. Hills, at 2115 N. Nevada, Colorado Springs - copy in EAH files) Her marriage date and announcement is found in "20 Years of Marriages 1858-1877 from Bureau Co, Illinois Newspapers", p.81 (977.3372 V29j SL-LDS).
