Subject: A Martha Ladley, Laetter I am looking for

Martha Ladley lived with Joshua Ladley here in Blount township in 1860 and had a son, William Ladley. The census also shows a Benjamin and a Ann E. Story goes Martha died, William went with her parents (name unknown), and Joshua went to war 1861 in IL remarried a Nancy Ellen Gray from Vermillion Co, and moved to Iowa, then Nebraska. Martha should be buried near here somewhere. I wonder if you recall a stone near 1860 death that named a Ladley?
Thanks for any assistance.

Looking for grave of Mary Jane Wining Wood. Information indicates she was buried in Bethel Cemetery but it does not say which one. Date of death is April 22, 1909. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

Subject: Unmarked grave at Bether Cemetery

I know of an unmarked grave at Bethel Cemetery. The grave is that of a one month old child born to Luther and Delona Marrow. I was told by my mother and also by several (Marrow) relatives about the unmarked grave. I recently found his birth and death record at the Vermilion county court house annex. The mothers name shown on the Birth Certificate is listed as "Delogna" P. Marrow. Her death notice from the newspaper indicates her name as Delona Perkins Marrow. The child's name was Otis Victor Marrow and he is said to be buried at the base of a very large tree located S.E. of Delona Marrow's grave which is located in the South East corner of the cemetery.

Luther and Delona Marrow had 9 children, 7 of them are buried at Bethel. Luther Marrow is buried in an unmarked grave in New Salem Cemetery which is about a mile and a half North of Bethel Cemetery. Ruth (Marrow) Allen is at Springhill and Bertha (Marrow) Nail is at Atherton.
