RE: Stauffer
My surname is Garcia. Actually, we live between Mt. Vernon and Fredericktown and just like FindAGrave. Our family is not from around here, so it is a fun way to do local stuff! Actually, I am the one who has contacted you about Sarah Swetland (who married Almon Stauffer). :o)

So far, the only Stauffer articles I've found are one about the wedding of Clifford Rockwell and Margaret Stauffer, one about the marriage of JAmes HArter and Mary Stauffer, and an obit for Sarah Swetland Stauffer. I would have thought I already sent you those, but if one doesn't ring a bell, let me know!

Oh, I did just find an article about Flo Armentrout's wedding -

Armentrout-Smith Wedding

An announcement of a marriage which will come with a great deal of interest
to many persons in Mt. Vernon is that of Miss Flo Harter Armentrout,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. Vance Armentrout of Louisville, Ky., to Mr.
Addison Escott Smith. The marriage took place Tuesday, Dec. 4, in

The bride is a granddaughter of Mrs. George S. Harter of 803 E. Gambier

Talk to you later!

RE: Flo Armentrout Smith
So welcome! I came across the article and remembered the name "Harter". Then, trying to find her was funny, as it sounded like she would have died. But, I found her parents and you had the memorials! I always try and remember the Harters when I am reading through Mt. Vernon newspapers!

RE: Annie Apple Van Marm
Thank you so much for the name correction. :) I knew Annie in Fayetteville. I am also friends with her mom. Annie's passing still brings tears to my eyes...all these years later...

Wow, all the places you could live, you live right near my brother and his family! That's really ausome to me because I live in Howard, Ohio. Thanks for the excellent work you are doing on Find-a-Grave. I get to meet the most interesting people. I would love to have the chance to hear some of your F.B.I. storys! I have a couple real cool ones that you might be interested in also.... Have a great day!

Thanks for the extra TLC
Alexander Stanfield is my 3rd, great-grandfather. Taking the time to clean up his headstone is very admirable.

Your friend, Susan.

Tony Lewis

I posted pictures on Tony's memorial. I apologize for the crooked pictures. I had others helping me with the photo taking and I don't think they realized the importance of getting a clear shot of the full gravestone.

I am thinking that perhaps Lula and Tony's origianl grave marker might have been replaced since it is in excellent condition and only shows their birth and death years without the actual month and day being listed.

Also, I added three more pictures to William Cash's memorial that I had taken. I have five pictures of Martha's side of the marker and will post them when you get a memorial added for her.

It looks like William and Lula Cash did indeed die the same year. William's death date appears to be July 08, 1936.

Hi James,

As best as I can tell by my pictures, William's wife's name was Martha. It looks like her birthdate was Nov 04, 1844 and her death date was Apr 06, 1912. I am unable to make out the name that is between her first name and birthdate on the marker. It is likely her maiden name.

Unfortunatley, I live over two hours away from the Sonora cemetery, and I do not know when I will get back there. However, I will make a note to take more pictures for you the next time I am able to visit the cemetery.

RE: Stauffer information
You're welcome. There were twelve graves belonging to the family, but only ten names are listed on the stone. You now know that A. Swetland is buried there, but that may still leave a hole. Might be worth a call to the cemetery office. Glad to help!
