It was discovered via a search engine that Lillian, a recent addition to the Arconati Family, is not the first one to bear that name. Please take a moment and view the results at the St. Louis Public Library – Obituary Index for 1993. Search the page using your browser for the following entry:
ARCONATI, LILLIAN (nee Daigger) 11/1
The parents, Jon & Kelly have been interviewed and it sounds like this one is a simple and interesting coincidence. It should be noted that the new Mom & Dad are doing fine and adjusting well.
Finally, Ruby Herod was interviewed as well and it is possible that she knew the older Lillian, though it was not 100% clear at this time how she was related to us. More details will come later.
