RE: Pryor Cemetery, Owen County
Thanks again for your quick response. I sometimes got a little confused about which cemetery you were referring to: Do you have access to the Adel Cemetery list of burials? Interesting about the sandstone headstones. All the graves at the Pryor Cem, Newark, are quite old: late 1800's. There seems to be only a single standing headstone, and one broken and fallen that is partially readable (based on Find A Grave record). I would love it if could one day visit the Pryor Cem Newark and describe to me what you find. (I live in New Mexico). The James Pryor headstone at Adel, tho fallen and broken, is surprisingly readable; it was very deep cut. Perhaps, if his wife Sarah is also buried there, her headstone was sandstone, or less protected. It would be interesting to know if there is an unreadable headstone in very close proximity to James.
Once again, thank you for your generous help.

RE: Pryor Cemetery, Owen County
I'm so appreciative of your quick response. Since you are familiar with cemeteries in the area, do you know anything about Adel Cemetery or the Newark Pryor Cemetery? This is the problem we're dealing with: There is a headstone for James Pryor (DOD July 21,1869) at Adel Cemetery. James Pryor, same DOD, appears on the group memorial stone (also his wife Sarah) at the Pryor Cemetery in Newark, Greene County. Almost all of the headstones at the Pryor Cemetery seem to be now missing,or in terrible disrepair, inordinately so, it seems to me. Might there possibly have been some kind of incident at Pryor Cemetery (vandalism, flood)? The memorial stone at the cemetery was established in 1952 by a Beazley; a Pryor bought the land from a Beazley in 1866. The memorial stone was most likely based upon family memory, and the "family record" is that he was buried at the location of the Newark Pryor Cem. Perhaps he never was buried there at all; tho difficult to imagine, might his body has been moved to Adel? Further,important evidence would be if James' wife Sarah is also buried at Adel. Do you know of any record of burials at Adel Cem, or how I might go about locating one? I'm assuming there are no burial records for the Newark Pryor Cem. Any info or suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Pryor Cemetery, Owen County
I am a Pryor descendent. Do you have any info re the history of the naming of the cemetery? My guess is that it located on land previously owned by a Pryor. ??? The cemetery has been about 70% photographed. Is that because only that many headstones were intact, or readable? Of note, because no Pryors are listed. I would appreciate any info you can provide. Thanks.

My gr aunt was indeed married twice to Collings and Burch. Just thought it would be better to have only one burial record. Wanda

My gr aunt has two sites on Findagrave. Both are listed on her parents page as a sibling. Could they possibly be connected into one. #13530774 & 16947519. Wanda

Clifford McBride Bigger #25427959
Do you know if John Bigger, Memorial# 59888214 and Nancy Gentry Bigger adopted Clifford or if he took John's surname? In the 1910 census Clifford McBride is listed as a nephew of John Bigger.
