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!) Thomas McVinnie (on the same stone) 1832 -1905 Margaret his wife (on the same stone) 1836-1918 Dennis J. McVinnie 1881-1899 (on a small stone near that for Thomas McVinnie) Owen (in the same plot) Jerome McVinnie died July 2, 1952 born Mch 14, 1900 (in a separate plot:) Ella Agnes McVinnie 1877 - 1953 (in a separate plot:) Thomas Cunningham Died 1908 (on same stone) Catherine Died 1916 (in a separate plot:) Cunningham (large stone with nothing else on it, but the following small stones just beyond it:) Dr. M.

Harding Born Apr. 18, 1869 Died March 15, 1890 (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.
