Buried in the Wood Cemetery in Van Buren is Irheen Pullin, wife of Tom Pullin, said to be the daughter of Willie Shaw. She was born 3 Jul 1890 and died in Jan of 1942. Since this "Willie" was only 7 years of age in 1890, this doesn't seem possible. There was no daughter of this name found in any of the census records. Also I found no Tom Pullin in the Crawford Co censuses 1900-1930.
