thank you very much i appreciate your help. her daughters obit mentions her being from a "prominent french family" what they mean by that exactly i dont know french basque maybe...and her gravestone gives the dates as 1859-1938. she and joseph chard had a daughter that died young either born or died in 1908. burried with j.d. chard a son of joseph and dina so i dont know if that dina 1908 is j.d.'s daughter or maybe a wife that happened to be named dina but im not sure. i hear dina Sr. burnt all her family photos so may not have been happy about her parents and such.
