Buried in Deer Creek Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 10 June 2011.

John H. Curnel and Mary Frances Croft, daughter of Logan Croft and Mary Ann Lucas, married 13 December 1863 Crittenden County. There is a discrepancy over the birth and death dates of Mary Frances. Her death certificate gives her birth date as 2 April 1841 and death date as 3 March 1932. The 1900 Crittenden County census shows her birth date as April 1839.

Logan Croft and Mary Ann Lucas, parents of Mary Frances, married 10 June 1841 Livingston County, Kentucky. Logan and Mary Ann were my great-great-great grandparents through their son, Jeremiah "Jerry" Croft, who married Sarah E. Cooper.
