GREAT photo Teresa! Thanks for sharing!  What cemetery is that in please?  It is definitely a more modern marker, but we could find out who placed it and seek out their sources and documentation for the persons they named on the marker.  I would suspect they did a good bit of research, as that is an expensive (over 1K) monument and most of us wouldn't want to print something incorrect on something so costly.  Of course, not everyone is the same, there is a marker in NC claiming to be a descendant of Ben Franklin that someone paid boocoo bucks for, sadly it is wrong though.  Again, thanks for sharing and it is nice to have someone else working on this too.  I'm going to the library Saturday afternoon and hope to put in some time adding from my research to the Shearin pages then too. :)
