The headstone in the Willow Cemetery in Toledo, shows Rollin H.Wickenden 1881 - 1956. However a letter from Charlotte Quaife, datedOctober 18, 1880, noted that "Lucy really needs help with her threeboys" - so this would place Rollin's birth into 1880 [Ken Watson,2003]

In a letter dated October 13, 1880 - Charlotte Quaife writes inreference to Rollin: "as to the new baby he is a dear little britefellow they think he looks like me but I think he is like your mothersbaby that he has blue eyes and his hair is about the colour of bobwhen he was little.
