RE: Rauch's
Lulie's headstone -

Alvin - dates not readable even when they transcribed it back in 1976. Only states d/o D & S Augustine - based on that we can assume she was a d/o David Augusine and second wife Sarah Geiger.
They are buried next row east walking toward church. Nothing confirmed - David Augustine had a first wife Elizabeth Unger. Just a big mystery until something shows on a record. Anne

Alvin, Took some photos today of the Row of Lulu Augustine who is first in the row - then next Soloman Rauch - then Susan Palmer Rauch. I posted them to all individuals. Hope this helps. Anne

Yes, will do - perhaps tommorow and get uploaded late eve after midnight. Hope you figure something out as we are always trying to identify folks and connect them to family. Anne

Arnold and St Joseph
HI Arnold is South of St Louis about 25 miles, and as I recall, St Joseph is North of Kansas City, right? I lived in Kansas City for 2 years on a temporary work assignment. I liked it there.

Harrodsburg cemeteries
Hi Alvin Since you lived in Harrodsburg, I am wondering if you know anything about old cemeteries on farmland. I have Higgins and Horine ancestors who lived there, had a lot of land. and died there.

Gideon Higgins left a set aside in his will for family burial in 1843. Near Shawnee Run Springs.

Probably not locatable, but thought maybe you might have heard of such.

No problem if you haven't. Always trying -:)

Regards Eleanor Gibson

Mary Sharp
Thank you Alvin for taking a picture of David & Mary Sharp tombstone. Now my question is this. Is Mary Sharp buried there?? With no dates it is questionable.
