Cemetery Tidibits

This page has cemetery tidbits contributed by others.
We will give them a permanent home in
their respective cemeteries when more transcriptions are done. Mary Jean

The Roman Catholic cemetery in Apalacon, connected with St. Thomas the Apostle Church,
but not located next to the church
Andrew McVinnia
(top of stone says 'Father')
1832 - 1907

(There's a family story related to the above stone, that it was originally 
used for someone in the Harding plot--a related family--but was discarded, 
so the McVinnia family, with permission, reused the stone.  Presumably, 
there is an additional name on it underground 
upside down!)

(beyond this large stone are small stones that say:  
Katie, Father, Mother, John, Michael)
Note that the questionable dates above are because of my handwriting.  
I think the stones are legible. 
I have a note also on one stone in a cemetery in Friendsville, across from the Roman Catholic church there:
Michael Cunningham Died Sept. 6, 1876 Aged 86 years Native of County Roscommon Ireland
Newman (or Neuman) Cemetery on highway 17 east of Great Bend.
The stone is an obelisk: The front reads: Frankie Son of Asa and Arminia Green Died Feb. 21, 1860 Aged 14 yrs, 6 mos and 26 days Suffer the little children to come unto me The back reads: Arminia Wife of Asa Green Died may 12 (?17) 1870 Aged 46 years and 1 (?) mo. [an illegible motto]
