Attemopting to find info concerning who I have listed as Elizabeth Manly wife of John Parr s/o John Parr. I am speculating she rests in Fairview Cemetery, Marion Co Ohio. She is listed as Elizabeth Parr "Wife of John Parr" and dates are faint but does indicate death date as May 1879. I believe that under this date is 51 yrs 6 mths therefore she may have been born abt 1828.
I do know for a fact that John Parr s/o Thonmas Parr and b. 1825 married Martha Manly in 1848 I believe marriage took place in Marion or Licking Counties. Martha born d. 1856 and rests in Guthery Cemetery Marion Co Ohio. her stone reads "Martha Parr wife of John Parr" On the bottom of her stone I think reads "20 yrs 5 mths" therefore making her birth year abt 1836. However, the stone does indicate her age but is not readible from the picture. This couple had 5 children yet only two lived beyound being very young. Their first child was born 1849 so this makes her being born in 1836 a bit off but then again the stone may reaad "30 Yrs" and make her birth year 1829, very close to Elizabeth Manly.
John Parr h/o Martha remarried to Mary Jane Wilson in Marion Co and then in 1855 moved to Mahaska Co Iowa.
There is a chance that Elizabeth and Martha were sisters as John Parr s/o Thomas and John Parr s/o John were 1st cousins.
There is a possibility that Elizabeth and martha are the daughters of Richard Manley d. Sept 1877 age 81 therefore born abt 1795 and Meka ??? w/o Richard. She died 1866 age 71 therefore birth year was abt 1795. Both rests in Guthrey Cemetery Ohio.
Any helpo would be appreciated
