Sympathy Saturday - Eliza Parker Todd

Unfortunately, I think these funeral cards were scanned at a low resolution. Still, they are still somewhat readable.

The cards from Duffs Funeral Notice collection all relate to people in my database. Eliza (Parker) Todd was my 1st cousin, 5 times removed. Her husband Robert Todd was my second cousin, 5 times removed and their children - including daughter Mary Ann Todd Lincoln were my second cousins, 4 times removed (through the Parker line.) This line is from Lexington, Kentucky and is one of the most confusing I have ever worked on. Actually working on any of my Parkers, Todds, and Bowman's is confusing but very rewarding.

July 6th 1825 funeral notice for Mary Todd Lincoln's mother.
