RE: Mary Ann Tarkington
It's a stretch. I got all the info, just too lazy to put it all in. From Jesse Tarkington you go to Ellsberry, then James O. and then Edgar Tarkington who married Lydia Burch. Lydia's grandfather, Charles Burch, had a first cousin, Fuel Burch, who married Margaret Carmichael. Margaret's first cousin was Peter Carmichael, and Peter was Hoagy's great grandfather.

I'm putting several of these people on Wikitree. I haven't done it yet, but I want a connection from Booth Tarkington to Hoagy Carmichael... and to myself of course.

Mary, I bet the dates for Mary Ann Tarkington Memorial #54176089 are 1840 to 1848, not 1810 to 1818. Look very closely to the photos there. Her mother was born in 1810.

You a more than welcome to share the picture; it is so cool to find a picture of a relative that you have never seen. If this one is not high enough quality let me know and I will get you a copy of the original jpeg.

Mary Ann, yes you may use the picture. I am going back and will hopefully find the other headstone you requested. This cemetery has many unmarked graves in it, but I plan on talking to the head of the association to help determine where they might be located.
