Note here that Maude's date of birth was stated as 1873 - this is incorrect. Her parents were not married until 1880. An obvious "lesson" that newspaper obituary article information should not be considered as a "primary" source for family information - a lesson I've learned the hard way on several occasions! Many thanks to Alice Todd Coyan, who allowed me to make a copy of this obit. It was her husband, George Daniel Coyan who found Maude in bed.
