Almira Howes Wild
Thank-you for the headstone photo for Almira. Since seeing the headstone I have found out that her maiden name was not wild-like I thought but Howes.

RE: Cyrus Gurney
I believe our lines cross at Sarah Dunham and Albert Gurney if I am not mistaken? Mary Ann Gurney(b.1839) is my Great Great Grandmother. I have many pictures of Gurney Headstones, just ask if you need any help at all!
Thanks again!
