RE: David and Margaret Alter, Mitchell cemetery
David Mell Alter m his cousin Margaret Ann Ritner on 20 April 1837 at the Pennsylvania State House when her father, Joseph Ritner, was the governor there. All of their known 11 children lived beyond childhood.

Their 5th son, George Dugan Alter died at age 66 on 1 May 1918, possibly in St. Louis. I suppose it's possible that he was buried in Mitchell, though it seems somewhat unlikely. He was married and had at least one son, Donald.

That's all I see in the files that seems at all relevant.

On another topic for the Mitchell Cemetery, my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Alter Barton, another of their children, lost her daughter, Dell Barton Palmer, and her husband, Charles Lee Barton, both in early 1900. They share a headstone. Mary Elizabeth left Mitchell with her second daughter and moved to St. Louis where ME died 14 January 1926. Information in the Mitchell Tribune of 1/21/26 said,
"Services were conducted at the home of her daughter in St. Louis Friday evening. Saturday the remains were brought to Mitchell and interred by the side of her husband, who, with the older daughter, Mrs. Della PALMER, had gone before a number of years ago."

She is apparently buried next to Charles, close to Dell, yet her name is not on the stone. Is there a record of her burial there? If so, do you know if it is possible to add her name to the side of the stone?

I see you have posted photos for this cemetery. Are you confident (or not) that all standing markers are accounted for? I found a record of a burial there that should/could have had a military marker. Is it possible that the stone has not yet been photographed? Or more likely there is no stone in place (gone or never installed)?

RE: Kennith Burton

The birth record found on Ancestry.Com lists his name as "Kenneth." But, we know both gravestones and printed records can be wrong! I did find that his obituary is available from the Monroe County Public Library so I have requested a copy. Maybe that will be the tie-breaker! If you would like a copy of the obituary, let me know where to send it or maybe I can attach it as a picture???
