However, I'm wondering how people determine what year to carve on a cornerstone. In the sweep of history, a year either way doesn't make much difference, I suppose. But if St Michael's cornerstone says 1902, how come a builder wasn't employed until the NEXT year? Did our ancestors maybe dispute how stuff should be done??
Oh well, these little mysteries are partly what keeps this genealogy thing interesting, and you reading, right? ☺
