This is the tombstone in the Union Cemetery at Crystal Lake, Illinois of Stanislaus Potoski Dillingham born 8 Aug 1835 in Dixfield, Oxford, Maine and died 25 June 1919 in Algonquin Twp, McHenry, Illinois. He married Eliza Minerva Hellenbolt 1 Dec 1870 in Rochester, Minnesota. She was born 1 March 1845 in Town2, Rock Co., Wisconsin and died 3 Sept 1933 in Algonquin Twp, McHenry, Illinois.
They had two daughters Anna M. Dillingham (my grandmother) and Abbie Fredelene Dillingham. Fredelene is also buried next to her parents but when we were there no stone for her, so after telling our cousins they have had a stone placed there for Fredelene. Stanuslaus had a brother and sister that were twins, named, Frederick and Fredelene, so he named his second child after his sister. Fredelene was born 3 Feb 1876 at Lyle, Mower, Minnesota and died 18 Jan 1960 in Woodstock, Illinois.
