Bill? description?

Randie - you are a very twenty-first century person! Itemized Bill? Invoices? Hardly!

The exact totals came from the administration of Tom's and Frank's estates, which brother Will McLaury paid out more than a month after the event. Ritter & Ream charged $141.68 to Tom's burial and $141.75 for Frank's.

The only source for the cost of the funeral was recorded in the Register of Estates and Guardianships, Book 1 (Cochise County). Billy left no estate, so his part of the funeral costs were paid by his family; no known record exists.

Best! paul

      There you have it. Since you have the text from the bill, is the bill available? Presumably there would be a description of the coffins, and a model name or number. Looking at how fancy they are, odd... more
