Thank you for the photo. Also, thank you for letting me know of my mistake in putting the Cummings burial location in this cemetery. I have removed them and will research where I went wrong, and possibly where they could be!

Martha Beatty Meck
Thanks for the Meck and Dewein obits. I was working on the Dewein family and found the marriage of Geo. Dewein to Lucy Meck. I have added information to the family tree at ancestry. Presently working on the Deweins. I wondered if you knew anything on the family of Martha Beatty Meck--who her parents might have been.
I have a lady in my tree with the maiden name of Mary Baity or some spelling there of from Penn whose came through Illinois first and then to Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. Died aged in 1925. We haven't found her parents and think it is possible she was an orphan from an early age. Just wondering and thanks for the Lucy Meck Dewein picture and obit wish you had one of George Dewein. Had a hard time finding them at ancestry in the census--in 1920 the copy is so bad they are listed with the last name of 'Susan'???; so I found them in Henderson Co., Ill., and corrected the last name--really bad copy of the page-very blurred. George was a lot older than Lucy. Wm & SJ. Donath #48116482
