|LauraInArizona||RE: Levi Scranton|
Thanks for the info. I'll let you know what I find - I'm not giving up searching yet!
I responded to a photo request for Levi Scranton. The oldest headstone in the Cochise Cemetery is 1911, and the cemetery was officially established in 1912. There are unidentified graves but the people who maintain the cemetery do not believe anyone was buried there prior to 1911.
So, I called around. (I live in Pearce, Arizona) The archivist in Tombstone checked the entire state for the death certificate of a Levi Scranton. There is none. She is asking where the information came from that a Levi Scranton died in Tombstone, because she has no record of him.
Could you give me more background so I can help find where Levi is buried here if he is indeed somewhere here in Cochise County?
No, they weren't his parents. Finding them has been impossible. However, I do think there is a connection to the ones you mentioned. James had one brother and they were on the 1870 census of Hunt Co., Texas as orphans. Anyway, do you know the exact cemetery Lum was buried? I haven't found a grave on him, either. I have his wife as buried in Elko, Nevada. My grandmother remembers Julia quite well

I was looking up grave sites for Kyle relatives and your name sounded so familiar, but I can't place it for sure. Now that I look back, I think you or your husband were descended from Lum C. Kyle. And you had a son that went through Air Force Basic Training in early 2000's. I was in San Antonio at the time.
To this day, I haven't been able to find a grave on Lum or his parents, in fact, I have declared the Kyle mystery (James and Sarah's burial spots and James' parents) unsolvable
