I am the ggreat grandaughter of Emily Casner Flanagan. The tombstone is incorrect for her. Through the census reports available on Jefferson County Website specifically 1850, Emily Casner Flanagan wife of A.D.(The A stands for Ambrose) Flanagan was only 23 (b. 1827)in 1850 which would make her age 34 years in 1861 when she died. I do believe I e-mailed this to you directly and I identified your Ramsay as her brother and that they were both born in Tenn. I am still looking for their mother who was George's first wife in TN. If you could possibly send me copies or scan your german information, I have fluent German family speakers and readers and would be happy to have them interpreted. Please read below for the information I have provided. I have spent many years and searches to prove Emily's information and this is only surface information and brief.

Off the Illinois Marriage Database:
FLANAGAN, AMBROSE D CASNER, EMILY 08/18/1842 002/0084 00000000 JEFFERSON

1850 Census (if you click on it, you can enlarge it. Go to the bottom of the page where George Casner is 53 and his wife Mary is 43, below that is Ambrose Flanagan and Emily Flanagan age 23)
