Photo 1: Susannah Eleanor [McDowell] McNary, tintype. I am in possession of this tintype, and I believe that it is one-of-a-kind. It is for this reason that I feel that I ought to share it digitally, so that all of her descendants may print for themselves a clear image of their lovely ancestor to pass along to their children.

Photo 2: Susannah [McDowell] McNary and James Edgar McNary [wedding photo, Barton Co, MO].

Photo 3: New headstone for James Edgar and Susannah Eleanor [McDowell] McNary. I had this new headstone made because the old ones had suffered decades of scraping by lawnmower blades to the point of becoming nearly unreadable. Nancy Poquette

Photo 4: Original headstone for Susannah. It had become so worn away with the scraping of lawnmower blades that it was nearly illegible.

Married James Edgar McNary on 10 Dec 1873 in Moniteau Co MO. Children: Effa (died young), Clyde (died young), Mary Eleanor, Charles Ewing, Ada Mae, Viola, Milton Edgar, Lorena, Flossie, Ray.

Enjoy the exploration!
