  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of Henry Rice Jerauld," email from Norma Roberts (undisclosed at example dot netm) to Weldon Whipple, 12 Sep 2009. Notes the following:
      • Sylvia was named for her Grandmother Sylvia Jones Coleman.
      • Lila May (Jerauld) Williams gave John Rhodes a copy of an old photograph taken at Ritchie Brothers, photographers at Kingman, Kingman Co.,Kansas. On the back of the phopograph is written "C.P.'s Mother" We are assuming this means Chester Porter's mother- Sylvia Tuttle. (Sylvia may have had a cousin, John, who lived in Kansas.- not proven yet)
      • Before her death, she did not live with her husband and children, in Auburn County, but resided in Otoe County, probably in a sick house.
      • A short article in "The Nebraska City New", dated March 4 1882, notes her death:"Mrs. Gerrauld the poor woman who died in the Hickey house on lower Main street Sunday night. was buried today."
      • The term poor probably does not refer to her being penniless, but that the writer was showing compassion or pity toward her. The Hickey house was probably a home where she was taken care of during her sickness. Also, Sunday night was actually early Monday morning, Feb 27th.
      • Her great-grandson, Ronald Jerauld ( Indianapolis,Indiana), says he was told by cemetery officials at Nebraska City that records show Sylvia's son, Chester, had her body moved
      • ( Aug 18 1887) to the Nebraska City cemetery. Mr. Jerauld believes she was originally buried in a poorer section of the cemetery, or perhaps outside the organized cemetery in a pauper field.
