Florence Yeiser

11900 U.S. Census. Although the FindaGrave site indicates this birth date was 1882, there is no stone showing and since the 1900 census indicates the birth year was 1883, I conclude the year was 1883.

David Ayers Yeiser Jr.

11900 U.S. Census. Although the FindaGrave site indicates the birth month was November, the 1900 census states it was August. The census was closer to the actual event so I'm going with August.
