Noah may be buried at Salem cemetery but there isn't a marker for him, or for his children. We don't know where Lucinda is buried, and she was the sister of my great grandmother, Malinda Katherine Lewallen Tounzen, so brothers married sisters. And I knew Andy and Goldie well, Goldie was my grandmothers first cousin.
I don't know who were John Daniels parents, he was believed to be the son of Joseph and Mary Tounzen living in Crawford Co. I would really like to know for sure.
