I came across Margaret Elizabeth Bond's death date, tonight. Margaret is the wife of Jacob Lewis Mansker. I was reading through Jake's military file on Fold3.com, and came across Ed Mansker's request to be reimbursed for Margaret's funeral expenses. It gives her death date as 22 Jan 1921. Her grave marker gives her death year as 1920, however, this is clearly in error.
