Lena to Mattie to Dock
Wow. All the help is appreciated and very interesting. I took a photos and added over 500 memorials for the Ryan cemetery. I transferred most to Find a Grave but kept some that I found “special.” That is why I still have Lena.

But, now I am very excited to know who belongs to the stone that I could only tell said Dock Lawley. And, better, I can now make out "Mollie," since I now know about her.

Note: you may find that Arthur Lawley died 13 Jan 1930 and not 1902. Lena was born in 1902.

Lena Lawley
So, that makes Lena's maiden name Martin, yes?
She married Arthur Lawley and was widowed by 1930 census. Interestingly, her mother also married a Lawley, Tony.

All true?

Could you delete the duplicate request for the edit? I will accept.

Working on a family tree for Lena Lawley. I think she was the daughter of Mattie Lawley (daughter of Elbert Lawley). I think Mattie Lawley married first John Thomas Lawley; then a Booth, and finally Tony Martin. Lena was by John Thomas. A child Clarence was fathered by the Booth. Lena died at a young age and had a young daughter who was raised by an uncle, Clarence Booth. Think Lena had the daughter out of wedlock (after the death of her husband Arthur Lawley)in about 1902. Some say the father of the illegitimate daughter was a Walter Booth and report that Walter committed suicide in the 1970s. Do you have any info on any of these folks? I'm not part of the family so I know only a few facts and I've become very confused with all the Lawleys.

I will have to check with my dad on the marriage date. Mary was his sister. Info came from him which I guess he would have gotten from her. Will also check with her son. Out of 9 children there are 2 left, her younger brothers Richard and Carl Jr (Buddy) Buddy is 91 and Richard 89. Richard is my dad.

RE: Burkhardt Headstone
Mina, what section is she buried in? I have the pictures grouped in sections. I have over 10,000 photographs to look through if I don't know the section. I will wait for your reply.
