Louis E Gaines
Sept. 21, 1910 - Nov. 16, 1960
Note: Louis's middle name was recorded on his death certificate on file at the Jefferson County courthouse Recorder's office as "Edwin". His death date was recorded (and engraved on his headstone) as Nov. 16, 1960.
A Lamson/Huyett/Gaines family researcher has created family group sheet files for this family using "Louis Edmund Gaines", d. Nov. 10, 1960.
The obituary for Louis was published in the Fairfield Ledger on Thursday, Nov. 17, 1960 and refers to his death taking place on Wednesday, which would be Nov. 16, 1960.
This contributor just wanted to bring these discrepancies to the attention of anyone who has been working on this Gaines family.
~~~~~~ Louis was first married to Eleanor Mae Griffith Gaines on/about 1932 and had three daughters from that marriage. Eleanor reportedly died in 2005 in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
In 1955 Louis married Refa Marie Teal Gaines, who after being widowed by Louis went on to subsequently marry Elmer Burch (1904-1991) in 1972. She is buried in this same plot as Louis, with a civilian headstone "Gaines" and a veteran footstone "Burch" in place for her. Elmer H. Burch is buried at Maple Hill Cemetery, Birmingham, Van Buren County, Iowa by his first wife Anna Cochrell Burch.
There are no post-ems notes associated with this record.
