My records indicate that her correct full name was Aletha (nickname Letha) Elizabeth Simon, daughter of George Simon & Celia Reger Simon.

Letha had the following siblings: Jacob (my great grandfather), Rebecca, Abram, Mary & John. Mary is also buried here at Linn-Bethel (according to her MO death certificate), altho her grave has not been located.

Letha was born in VA on February 5, 1840 and died at Parson's Creek (Linn Co) on March 23, 1920. MO death certificate #13298. Cause of death: Influenza & Bronchitis.

Letha married Jacob Sargent (a widower of Lucinda Lanham) on March 4, 1858 in MO.

Letha & Jacob had the following children: Lean Grace, Charles Lee, William, George and Arthur J.

There is "evidence of a grave" next to Jacob, so we "might" assume this is Letha's grave.
