Hi Heather,

I'm doing research on my wife's adopted grandmother and noticed that you added some biography information on Leila Violet Caldwell Pilgrim (Caldwell-3143) stating that she had 2 children. What was your source? I have been unable to find any data indicating that Leila had any children. Thanks!

n/m, I think I found it. It's mentioned in her obituary. Got it.
