Thank you for revealing some details we've all been wondering about
for awhile. I had heard rumors that the Blanding's had gone to
Hawaii...that means that Don must have returned from his Central
American trip before May. I think he was already working for the
Charles R. Frazier advertising company when he sent for the family.
My records show that Jessie Blanding died on April 6, 1899. So she
was buried four days later.
Good work Jim.
