Tombstone Tuesday - Margaret Newcom

Wife of
M.W. Newcom
July 1, 1834

Buried Bells Mines Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 15 October 2010. The bottom line of the inscription is not visible.

Margaret Ann Hoyt married M.W. Newcom 8 January 1852 in Crittenden County. The 1860 Crittenden County census shows only M.W. Newcom and two children, Francis A., age 6, and Wm. D., age 3. It is assumed that Margaret died between 1857 and 1860. M.W. Newcom died by 11 February 1861, when E.H. Bennett was appointed administrator of Newcom's estate.
