|Bonnie||Mary Pugh, continued|
I'm sorry, in the previous message I neglected to put the memorial number. It is Memorial# 29424444.
Thanks in advance for your help.

|Bonnie||Mary Pugh's Headstone|
First of all, thank you for all your work taking pictures and making memorials. It is really helpful for descendants who live so far away.
I am Mary Pugh's 3rd great granddaughter (Robert, her husband and she had Robert, b 1772; he and his wife Ann Margaret McDonald had James, b 1809; James and Eveline had William E, b 1847; and W E Pugh and Lavina had Frank, my grandfather).
Looking at the picture of the headstone that you have listed for her makes me think it might not be the same Mary Pugh. The stone says "Wife of Joseph" and therefore it can't belong to this Mary Pugh who was wife of Robert Pugh (b 1730) who was the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Edwards as it says in the text.
Would it be possible for you to double check and if this is not the right picture, could you please delete it from the memorial. I believe that Robert and Mary are both buried here (according to information I have read in various places) but I believe their graves are not marked. The land originally belonged to her and her husband and they gave part of it to the church for a cemetery. So it makes sense that they are there. But I don't believe they have stones that have survived. At least, my husband and I could not find them when we visited there several years ago.
Thanks again for your work in documenting this cemetery.
