There is something very satisfying about the motion of the car as it dips and glides across the land following the road to a cemetery. The next is the feeling of walking the land, studying the tombstone(s), and then looking in different directions as you experience the land and what life might have been like for your ancestor.
Page 68 of the publication "Millersburg United Methodist Church 1890-1990 Serving for a Century" lists D.D. as #392 Row 10, Stone 10. Sarah is listed as #393 Row 10, Stone 10. Sarah was Daniel's second wife and they had seven children: Lydia, Virda, Reed, Daniel, Peter, Charles, and Alfred. Daniel's first marriage to Elizabeth produced four children: Henry (Jerry's ancestor), Oliver, Mary and Amarilla, my ancestor. I obtained a copy at the Iowa County Genealogical Society.
