I looked at the letter I have and I was wrong. It was signed by someone of the community by the name of McCampbell stating that Mary was of age to marry. I will have to look further into this Thomas you speak of and would like to know more about him and her mother if you have any more information on them.
Mary aka Polly may be buried near Benjamin aka B.B. in the McCormick Cemetery just outside of Ottumwa, Iowa. If you look in my virtual cemetery of my family you will see his profile. I haven't been to the cemetery in years since I discovered that was in fact my Benjamin buried there. When I have a chance I will go to the cemetery and see if she is mentioned on his stone or if she is buried near by. Some of the documents that you are finding and I have found do state Stephens but it was actually Stevens. It evolved over time from the Stephens name. Please share any information that you find on Mary's parents since I am having difficulty tracking them. I have found information stating her father's name was Daniel and no mother's name. I believe I have a letter signed by him (I will have to look at it again when I have time to confirm) giving permission for Mary and Benjamin to get married. If I can help you in anyway with information please let me know.
Daugherty I found the spot where James and Julia Daugherty were buried according to the Oak Grove Cemetery Owner and Caretaker. There were no stones, however I took a photo of the area where the stones would have went.
I also took a closeup of Cornelia Ann (Right) Daugherty's gravestone.
Grave Photos Hi Heidi, I listed Pioneer Park a month after I joined Find A Grave. The only ones listed there were Richard Taylor, a Civil War Congressional Medal Of Honor recepiant and John Anderson Scudder who was a U.S. Congressman. Both of these are managed by Find A Grave. I thought the others deserved to be remembered so I photographed them all and listed them. The Buzans are the only 2 that don't have a photo so I'm guessing they don't have a marker. The library has a list for all cemeteries and their names may be on it although they don't have stones. BTW, Pioneer Park is what is left of 2 old cemeteries that were abandoned in 1895. The Old City Cemetery ran east to west and Pioneer park is at the west end of it. The other was the Old Catholic Cemetery and it ran south to north from the S.E. corner of the other northward. The families that could afford it moved their people to either Oak Grove of St. Johns cemeteries. I'll be by there today and will look to see if they have a stone, but I think that if they do, I would have added them. Sorry, Jim Jones
