The grave stone shown here does not agree with her death certificate dates which are shown above. It also does not agree with her middle initial. Multiple sources such as census records, and death certificates of her twin sons born in 1912 list it as C.

Mary C Lampe was first married to Louis Peglow in 1895. They had two children:
Charles Daniel (1895-1917)
Elfrieda / Alfreda L (1899-1976)
Bertha M (1902- ?)

Louis, Mary and the two children Charles and Elfrieda were shown living with Louis's father Charles Peglow in 1900 in Chariton Co, MO.

Later, in 1910, Mary was listed as Mary C as she was living with husband Charles W Minks, and children Pearl, Sylvia A and Herbert (Jay) Minks, along with Charles D, Alfreda L and Bertha M Peglow.

In 1912 Mary C Lampe Minks gave birth prematurely to two twin sons who did not survive that tragic event. They lived only 2 hours on 3 Sep 1912.

In 1920, Mary was listed (age 47) living with Charles Minks again, along with children Elfrieda, Pearl and Bertha Peglow, and Sylvia, Jay and Milton Minks, and finally grandson Roy Peglow (whose mother may have been Pearl since she was listed as a widow and therefore had been married.) Both Elfrieda and Bertha were listed as single. I believe that Pearl should not have been listed as a Peglow, but as a Minks.

Charles Minks was married to a woman named Rosa (1900 census) and Rosa was the mother of Pearl Mae and Sylvia A Minks. The link to her grave is shown below via Charles.
