RE: Richard Vaughn
the pictures would be great, thanks, I will try and keep you posted on any other info. I am tracking her sister Ruth Magdalene Porter born 1917 and married Charles E Stegner. Next time I am in Sedalia I hope to search out info from their library. I think she died in KC and he in the state of Washington. Later Mike

RE: Richard Vaughn
there were aunts on the Zinn side and lived near by. A Mrs Walter Scott of Hughesville, Mrs Lee Jeffries of Lamonte and Mrs Ernest Jenkins of Kansas city. then their uncle is shown in 1930 with her in his home plus the grandmother Mary Zinn. that is about all I know of their upbringing. I do have the story as told in the paper about the shooting of their mother by the father and then the mothers father John Zinn shooting the Son in Law. Her mother was shot twice. Very sad I would have to say. I think the 3 kids were split up. You wouldn't know if she had any old pictures of the Zinn side would you. I kind of doubt it as most everyone were quite old and the kids would most likely have been moved around a lot..

RE: Richard Vaughn
its beautiful to hear she was such a nice lady and had a great life with Richard. She was left an orphan at a early age with her brother and sister.

RE: William Martin
Carbondale was first settled in 1854, the last burial in Woodlawn Cemetery was 100 years later in 1954. From the style and condition of this partial broken stone, I would guess it was from the first 50 years. Any person (of any age) who went by the name William Martin in Jackson County during that timeframe is a possibility. Some of those are easy to document elsewhere, so we can tell it's not them. However, I wanted to note that this stone was not recorded in previous Woodlawn cemetery transcriptions, so it may have been moved here from another cemetery at a later date. I have added all of the information you sent to the memorial page for this marker, as I agree he is the most likely candidate. I reviewed the records I had and added the rest of the documented Martin names to the cemetery. The majority (but not all) are the immediate family of "Charles and Sarah Martin," but Martin was a common name here (still is). I will check the county probate files for the death date you suggested, maybe that will give place of burial for your William. If not, hopefully someday the second half of the stone with the dates will be uncovered!

RE: William Martin
Unfortunately there are several other possible William Martins in the Carbondale area. I was hoping you had a source for birth, death, or burial in Woodlawn for your William. I will make a notation on the page for William Martin in Woodlawn of this information for one possible William Martin. Thanks for sending it.

William Martin
Because Martin is such a common name here, I was wondering if you could share your sources for the info you sent? I want to make sure it's the right William Martin.
