Mary Cunningham grave @ Iantha You asked why Mary was buried in Iantha when the remainder of her family are buried back in Kansas. I think I can give a plausible answer to that. It seems that perhaps Edith and Hugh might have followed her parents Joel and Matilda, when for a time they moved back to where Matilda's parents were - Barton County, Missouri. I am related through Matilda (Jones) Cunningham. Matilda was my grandfather's sister. I am related through William Jones and wife Viola (Aleshire) Jones. William, Viola and his parents (along with many others) are buried at Barton City Cemetery. I also have quite a few family members buried at Iantha Cemetery.
RE: Stephen Lassiter Hi, You're very welcome. I enjoy the opportunity to get out and take the photos as requested; I've been lucky enough to have folks take photos I've requested. Its nice to be able to return the favor when I can. Dave
RE: Rachel Terhune You're very welcome!! There are a couple of questions I was wanting to ask you. First, did Rachel have a nick name? The stone is inscribed Bessie, although it is hard to read. The birth date and death date are the same as you have for Rachel. Second, is it ok with you to use chalk on the stone to help make it more legible? The stone isn't in bad shape it's just hard to read from dirt and lichen build up over the years. I also wanted to tell you that she shares the stone with Charles Terhune, she is on the north side of the stone and Charles is on the south side of the stone.
