RE: mary jane Smith hostettler
Hi Jill,

Thanks for your reply.

I've been doing quite a bit of research on my family.

John Henry Smith (#78481636) is actually Mary Jane Smith Hostetler's (#127893769) brother.

There is also another error on John Henry's information that lists another sister incorrectly as his child (Ella May Holston - #53138709).

According to my research, Mary Jane Smith Hostetler's parents are buried in the Westlawn Cemetery (North Liberty, St. Joseph County, Indiana) in lot 105, which is the same plot as Mary Jane Smith Hostetler and her husband (David Marshall Hostetler).

Research indicates that her parents did not have headstones, however and their graves weren't marked.

Her parents are:

John S. Smith and his wife, Martha Ann (Murphy) Smith.

Their birth and death dates follow:

John S. Smith
-Born May of 1826 (in Pennsylvania)
-Died December 28, 1900

Martha Ann (Murphy) Smith
-Born December 16, 1827 (in Ohio)
-Died January 15, 1903

Can we get the current information corrected? Also, is there any way that we can get John S. Smith and Martha Ann (Murphy) Smith entered in Findagrave as the parents of Mary Jane Smith Hostetler?

Thank you very much for your time!
