Samuel Coffman headstone photo at Lindale Mennonite Church Cemetery
Hi, I would love to add this headstone photo to my family tree on with the photo credit to you of course. Please let me know if you object to this or to let me know how you would prefer the photo credit worded. If I do not hear from you , I will assume it is okay to use it. Thanks so much.

Jacob & Isabella Byerly
Thanks very much for that correction, Kim.
I do appreciate it.

Now, did you ever come across a "Bessie Byerly" buried at Byerly Cemetery?

The first five of Jacob & Belle's eight children were born at Bridgewater, VA, and their last three children were born after they moved to Butler Co. KS.

Bessie (#4) was born in VA in 1873 and died in infancy. I have never been able to locate her burial, but highly suspect it may be in Byerly Cemetery, since her grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. are there.

Sincerely, Elizabeth

Jacob Byerly (43007369)
Hey Kim, just another thought....

The confusion with these two Jacobs may stem from the middle names...

My great-great grandfather Jacob Byerly (33591248 @ Brownlow Cemetery, Butler Co KS) is listed as "Jacob PETER" on the 1867 Rockingham Co marriage license with Isabella Thuma.

The Jacob you added at Byerly Cemetery (1816-1892) is always listed only as "JACOB" in any of the records I have found to this point.

Interested in your thoughts on this...
Thanks again, Elizabeth

Jacob P Byerly (43007369)
Hi Kim,
The Jacob Peter Byerly (1816-1892) buried at Byerly Cemetery was not married to Isabel Thuma.

Isabella Thuma (1846-1885)was married to the Jacob Byerly (1843-1884)(33591248) buried at Brownlow Cemetery in Butler Co KS. They are my great-great grandparents.

I have a marriage license for both Jacobs.

I believe the elder Jacob was my Jacob's uncle.
The 1850 Rockingham Co Census 56th District shows 2 Jacobs. One, age 34, married to Margaret with 2 young daughters.
The younger Jacob, age 7, with his parents and 8 siblings.

I have enjoyed viewing the photos & info you have added for the Byerly Cemetery, and hope very much to visit it someday!
Thank you very much for your time & effort.

Sorry Kim,
I don't know where I came up with this one. It does look like Mertz, is that March in German. I must have been looking at an old picture I took since mine is not on your memorial. Trying to get through all the pictures I have stored. Thanks for checking. Sheila
