Gravestone, Catherine (Burrow) Winn

Catharine Burrow is my Third Great Grandmother. She was born in 1812 in New York. (There is information that shows that she was born in Oct 1812 in Delaware County, New York. I have not yet had the opportunity to verify the sources.)

She married William Bray Winn, date and location unknown.

Catharine died on 4 March 1883 and is buried in the Shelby Cemetery, Shelby, Iowa.

Gravestone, Clara Wagar

Clara Wagar is my Second Great Grandmother. She was born to Stephan Wagar and Susana Holmes on 22 March 1866* in Constantine, Michigan.

Clara married Frank Palmer on 4 March 1888 in Three Rivers, Michigan. Frank was born on 9 July 1866 in Constantine, Michigan to James Palmer and Sarah Powers. Frank died on 17 March 1891 in Three Rivers, Michigan from an eye infection.

Clara married Aaron Major (Mage) Milliman on 7 January 1894 in Three Rivers, Michigan.

Clara died on 22 Dec 1939 in Litchfield, Michigan.

She is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Three Rivers, Michigan next to her first husband, Frank.

The gravestone reads:

Clara Wagar
1865* – 1939
*According to Clara’s Marriage Certificates to Frank and Mage, she was born in 1866. I believe that date to be more correct than the date on her gravestone.
