I 'inherited' Melva on Find A Grave #95944821.
Melva was married to my uncle. I asked the prior manager on Find A Grave for his sources but he didn't have any.
There is no headstone picture and the cemetery doesn't have an independent list of the interments.

She was born in 1908. She was married 25 Aug 1928 to George L [E] Littlefield. She appears briefly in the 1940 Census in Washington DC. She had a brother, George Edward Littlefield, III who was one year younger.

The Find  A Grave info indicated she died in 1944.
Any help here is appreciated.

thanks,

That was it. I couldn't find it due to the misspelling of the last name.

thank you!!
