RE: Caroline Corn
I think Find A Grave memorial # 83948409 is Caroline's sister, Maggie. Her other sister, Mamie, is likely listed under an unknown married surname. I show Caroline b. in Ohio. I would have to check sources for that info, and go back and track her husband Joshua's movement from his POB (Patrick Co., Virginia) to Missouri. Carrie was quite a bit younger than he. I show they married in 1860 in Missouri. Joshua was first married to Adeline Dalton 16 Apr 1854 (also in Missouri); she died 8 Mar 1855. No known children of that union.

RE: Skellenger's - Oak Grove Cem.
I don't get back since my mom moved away in 2016. I'm in contact with a few people from my class so I keep up on the news, including reunions but I guess I'm not the sort to go. I have a few pictures of my grandfather at home and will add when I get time. The one of my grandma I just happened to have on this computer, because it's my favorite. My grandfather took it.

Also, i forgot to mention: my grandfather and grandmother lived in Stuart (Martin Co) Fla but he did die in Colorado while on a trip.

RE: Skellenger's - Oak Grove Cem.
No, a few months before her cancer came back, she fell and my mom moved her in at our house. That's where she died. Mom lived near the old Country Butcher Shop in Lafayette Co. She had an OG address but Findagrave won't let me select those together.

RE: Skellenger's - Oak Grove Cem.
Yes, these are my grandparents. My mother (Mary Riley) moved to Oak Grove in 1977 when she remarried and I lived there with her from 1981-1985, when I graduated from Oak Grove HS. After my stepdad died in 1989, my mom remained in OG until 2 years ago. (She used to own Country Flowers & Gifts).

My grandfather died in 1984 (on a trip to CO) and my grandmother kept his ashes. As she got older, she decided to relocate from Florida to be near my mother. She lived in OG Manor for several years. She died, and when she was buried, my mom placed the marker (which my grandmother had already bought) and my grandfather's ashes with her. Unfortunately, Mr. Royer was never able to find the numbers for the dates of death.

I moved from the KC area to Wisconsin 5 years ago for work - my mom followed 2 years ago. I see the marker really should be replaced as that bronze plate looks terrible. We knew that someone stole the vase, which is really unfortunate.

Actually, I will be in KC this weekend and will try to stop and put something there so people know they are not forgotten. They are a long way from "home" and now have very little family nearby (although I have a cousin in Independence). That's why I wanted to link them with family on Findagrave.

Thanks for asking and for caring for the cemetery. Regards - Michele Short McCawley

RE: Cyrus Hutchinson
I don't recall if I replied to either of the messages you sent to me about Cyrus Hutchinson. All I know about the family I've been able to get from the obituaries I have on the family members. I'm guessing the parents are probably buried on the Withers plantation near Westville but they could be any place. I searched for as much information as I could find on this family and made as many connections as possible. As it turns out, one of the Hutchinson descendants was Donna Caswell who was in my class in school in Marceline but she died in her sophmore year and is buried in Mt Olivet Cemetery in Marceline.

You mentioned that you like to go to the cemeteries and that is also an interest of mine. I have an index to most all of the graves in Linn County that are in known cemeteries. I grew up in Marceline but live near Wichita, KS now. I go to at least one cemetery every time I go back to Linn County. I'm helping some of the sextons update their records and get them organized. I've been to several of the old family cemeteries and am trying to photograph and document as many of them as I can. Just not enough time. My index also has references to obituaries and other sources of information for a large per cent of the people ad I have copies of most of that information. So if you ever need information on anyone in Linn County let me know and I'll see what I might have.

RE: Cyrus Hutchinson
No I don't have any idea right now but the information I found on Adam was that he was born on the Withers Plantation near Westville. Most of the Hutchinson family that I've found are in the southern Linn County and Chariton county so I'm guessing his Samuel and his wife are buried somewhere in Chariton County. You might try searching Findagrave for Chariton County and see if you find anything. I also looked in Macon County but didn't come up with anything. There are some Hutchinsons buried in Rose Hill, Mt Olivet, and Rothville that I know of that are all related. One of the Emmas and her mother are buried in Rose Hill but they died in Salisbury. So the husband may be in Salisbury. Some also lived in Keytesville and Brunswick. I think I ran on to another brother to Cyrus and Adam in the Keytesville or Rothville area but I've lost track of him for the moment.

Are you from the Marceline area?
