1923 Memorial Card, Alvah A. Gaylord, died 11 June 1923

Memorial card on the occasion of the death of Alvah A. Gaylord, who died June 11, 1923 at age 52. 

[Note: the South Dakota record for the death of an Alvah A. Gaylord has the date of 10 June 1923.]

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Alvah A. Gaylord was born about September 1871 in Illinois, son of Charles  S. and Margaret (Fulton) Gaylord.

About 1893 he married Nora; at some point, they divorced.  

On 8 June 1914 in Brown County, South Dakota, Alvah married Clara Frankie (Jividen) Bush, widow of John Bush and mother of Marie L. Bush, born about 1900.   "Frankie" was the daughter of Elias and  Viola Emma (Webster) Jividen.

As noted above, there's a discrepancy between the Alvah A. Gaylord's death dates on the official South Dakota Record and the memorial card.  The death record lists 10 June 1923.
