It was really hot or I would have done more. Unfortunately, when there are so many requests, it gets confusing! Happy hunting, Wanda

Church may be entirely unrelated. I know that plots are often split, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over that one. :)

Hi there, Ralph...
There was no footstone for Thomas and that is why there is only the family head or lot stone to put on Thomas’ memorial page. According to the relative who made the page, Thomas is buried in that lot with his parents.

Yeah, I'm going to run the Churches thru Ancestry on my next rainy day. Just a curious situation. I'll let you know if I find anything substantive! :)

|jane austin||More on Gowen|
It's not RG's stone that's removed. It's someone else's, and whose I now have no idea.
It is possible that Ms. Church's husband is the "father" stone that appears to be Mr. Gowen's foot stone.
You may want to call the city of Hartley. The records are kept at City Hall. The book at the cemetery is a map in alpha order, and I can't tell who all is in plot nine. You need to know who they have buried in Plot M9.
Perhaps the Churches are a plot unto themselves.

|jane austin||RE: Albertena Mary Allen Gowen|
Okay. It appears that our little lady is lying in an unmarked grave. I caved in and looked her up in the cemetery map.
I find an "M. A. Gowen" buried in plot M9 with Stella Gowen, Mary's sister, as well as their parents, R.C. and M.A. Allen. There is no stone that corresponds with that burial location for Mary.
The father's head stone has been removed (clearly - the concrete pad remained) and only the pad and footstone remain. That says simply "Father" and bears a large masonic insignia.
The map does not show his removal, and generally when there's a disinterment, it is noted in this book. I have no information that confirms he was removed, or to where, but it looks to my eye as if he's gone. He predeceased her, so that leaves out a needy subsequent wife.
There is an open space between Stella and "M. C." Allen, who is, I believe, the girls' mother.
Mary died shortly before her mother did. I'm finding it difficult to comprehend this family dynamic.
But what it boils down to is this: If she's in this cemetery, and indicators are that she is, her grave is unmarked.
Why she is unmarked and her father's stone is gone (or was never placed?) is really beyond my scope of understanding.
So shall we just assume that she is buried there in an unmarked grave in the open spot between her sister and her mother? I have a decent shot that shows the open space, and I can post that to the memorial if you like.
This is a very curious situation. I think we're going to have to dig for more obituaries or gossip column information in the newspaper!
AND.. there's more. In the same plot, by the tree at Stella's feet, is one Elizabeth M. Church (1823-1906). I have no idea how she fits in with this family. Perhaps a sister of Mr. or Mrs. Allen? But it gets stranger still. Elizabeth is listed with a spouse of Sallie Moore. 10536396 is where you can see her grave. The tomb in the background there is Stella's. I'm lost.
There are no other Churches in the family at this point (only one small section left to work (and that's in the older, not the newer part of the cemetery) and the two Moore couples who are at rest here would have to be next generation or beyond.
LMK. If it were mine, I'd say show Mary Albertena as unmarked for now at least, and then do a ton of research to find out where Mr. Allen went while Mrs. Allen stayed, why Mary has no memorial stone and who Elizabeth Church is, and if indeed that is your MA Gowen lying in an unmarked grave. The cemetery is very well maintained, so I really can't even venture a guess based on the lay of the land.
I think I've asked enough questions that I'm now satisfied that we have found her grave, there's just grass, a sister, a mom to show for it. No stone.

|jane austin||Albertena Mary Allen Gowen|
So you're saying that sisters (Albertena and Stella) married Oren Ledger Gowen? Or cousins? Or?
Not sure where else to look for this grave.
