RE: Troi Clayton Tyner
Thank you. He was a dear friend and former teacher at Liberty Benton HS. I added his name to Find a Grave because I could find no record of him there.

RE: Margaret Thompson
Yes, we believe that they are there, but there is no proof. Since my Grandma and her sister believed that they were in section B, and one would think that they probably visited the graves when they were younger, it seems most likely that they are there.
My Mom confirmed that there are no Edwards' on the family tree. Yet we know very little about the Plummers.
I have looked in the cemetery inscription book for MG at the library. The dates on the book say 1854 to 1912, I believe, but there is no listing for Jonathon or Sarah in the index.
I know that Jonathon was born in 1807 in Pennsylvania, and he died in 1881. We do have a copy of a newspaper that writes about 2 sentences about his death. I found a copy of his death certificate in the Plummer file at the library. I need to find that, and get the exact date. He had lived in McComb before he ended up in the county home.
I believe that the Liberty Township Inscription book simply says that there are no records for the County Home Cemetery.

RE: Margaret
Part of it was from eCMIS, but the year of the date of birth was from the marker itself. I just now submitted the picture.
I appreciate your insight on the eCMIS website, as I have only been doing this for a short time. I got involved trying to locate a marker for my Great-Great-Grandparents.I wonder if you can give me an opinion on this mystery. My family has been trying to locate it for years......starting with my Grandma and her sister. I have copies of communication from the office to my family from years and years ago. There is no marker, plain and simple. I thought that the eCMIS would be helpful, and my GGGrandpa, Jonathon Plummer is on there...but his wife Sarah is not. The eCMIS actually says that he died in 1907 when the reality is that he died in 1881 so I did not know if it was actually him or if the map was a mistake. To add to the mystery, someone else's tombstone appears to be right where the eCMIS map says he is. When I told my 84 year old mother this, she says she honestly believes that he is more likely buried in another part of Section B b/c the Maple Grove office once told her that our family owned two empty graves there beside my Great Great Grandmother, Nancy Plummer Firmin (their daughter) and her husband Edmund Firmin as well as Edmund's first wife. It would make sense that they were buried there.
Jonathon died at the Hancock County Home and I am aware that there was a cemetery there without records, but the fact that my Grandma and her sister were certain that Jonathon was buried in section B at Maple Grove, and the fact that Jonathon had been a sexton there for many years make me think it is more likely that he is buried at MG.
I tried to talk to the MG Office one day but found very little interest. I have pretty much accepted the fact that we will never know for sure but any insight you can offer would be much appreciated.
