Can anyone help with these queries?



November

I have a William Ferris Stidham born 19 Sept 1834 in PA and died on 29 Jul 1892 
in Washington DC.  He was married to Elizabeth Seymore Bowman born 1832 in 
Maryland and died in 1910 In Washington DC.  They had daughter Lida Bowman 
Stidham that was born in 1848 in PA and died in 1918 in Washington DC.  All 3 are 
buried at the Oak Hill Cemetery, Plot:  Reno Hill, Lot, 908  Washington, District 
of Columbia.

I have this information that I have found. Does anyone know What a Chief Navy Agent 
director is?  Or a compositioner?  Would there be any obituaries for him?  Thanks 
for your help.  Cathy Cadd
