RE: Memorial# 38542353
Mystery solved! :-)
If I still haven't convinced you:
Check GEAUGA COUNTY OHIO - Marriages, 1806 - 1919 BRIDE'S INDEX at:

23 Jul 1849 Lovina HINE married Thomas WELCH

View the original at Familysearch - says she was aged "fifteen" and they had parents written consent - I
suspect she was perhaps even a year younger.

I am descended from her sister, Electa Hine.

Memorial# 38542353

Regarding - Lavina Unice Welch Gallea

I believe that Lavina, 2nd wife of Stephen Gallea, was Lavina Hine, daughter of William Riley Hine and his wife Clarissa Stuart. She was born in Geauga Co., OH.

bio of Wm Hine from "History of Geauga and Lake Counties, Ohio" includes this note: Of his eight children, three of whom were born previous to the arrival in this country, all are living but two, as follows: ... Almira, wife of Samuel F. Baker, living in Pennsylvania; Electa, unmarried, living with a brother; Lavina, became the wife of Stephen Gallea, of Kansas; ...

1850 census her name was spelled "Lovinda" & judging by the other names and dates that were close but not correct, I'd guess that the census enumerator was gathering info from a neighbor or something of the sort.

Many folks have also cited the marriage to a Secrest, though I haven't seen a source.

Please reconsider the edits I sent regarding plot information. The way they are currently formatted is backward from actual signage and plot mapping hierarchy used in locating order to locate graves.

Proper formatting is as follows:

Owen Lynn Palmer
I think you said we sent you something that stated that Mary Alice Richard was Owen Palmers first wife and if we did we didn't mean too. Mary Alice was his second wife, being married on 7 Oct 1919. His daughter Ida Leona will be 92 this month and would like to see all of this in order so if you need any further information please contact us so we can get this done. Thank you for your time.

Harper Edward & Tourtellotte
Hello, Edward Harper 1855/1931 is my great uncle. I have his family information. But the big question for me is the other side of the gravestone with Tourtellotte. I have no idea how this name fits into the family. Any clue?

Owen Lynn Palmer
Rec'd your decline of the information we sent you on Owen Lynn's children. I'm sitting next to his daughter Ida Leona Palmer (28 Aug 1923) and she has her birth certificate. She did not learn about her sister's birth until we started doing research, Maria Eva Palmer born Nov 1919 in Phoenix, Maricopa, Arizona. Died in 1923 in LaVeen, Arizona. We haven't found her grave site. Still looking.
Have you ever done any research on if so or if not, you can go on and find what we've been able to add on her line. It's amazing. If you would like us to send you a copy of her birth certificate showing you that she is a daughter of Owen and Mary Alice Richards we can do that. Just let us know. Thanking for your time. Leona

Cynthia and Eliphalet Peck / Worth
I searched to no avail. It's a small cemetery and I doubt I missed any legible markers, but I'll check again sometime when long grass isn't an issue. The families tend to be grouped, and I did find some Pecks, but no Cynthia (a name I would enjoy finding that far back) nor Eliphalet (a name I would enjoy finding anywhere at any time).
