Margaret Crandel Milner, m/o John Elihu Milner, f/o Michael Elmer Milner, f/o Robert Browning Milner, f/o Rotcher Carroll Milner, f/o Nan Milner
She shares a grave marker with husband Samuel. Since he died over 30 years before her, the marker was probably made to include both their names and not corrected to include the surname of Payne upon her death. Her certificate of death from Huntington County states cause of death was paralysis and that she was a widow.
