      Mr Wood,
      Katy STEPHENSON is indeed in the Old Bethel Cemetery; her tombstone
      shows her date of birth as 29 April 1871 and date of death as 22 August 1894.
      Alonzo Judson STEPHENSON is in the Caledonia Cemetery on the eastern end of
      Sparta. His tombstone in section R gives his date of birth as 1871 and date
      of death as 1933. There are seven BAIRDs in the Old Bethel Cemetery. Three
      tombstones only have "BAIRD" on them, no first names. Mary McCaughan BAIRD
      may not have had a tombstone erected, which happens often. You certainly had
      me jumping around in these index books with the way that you made your
      request. I am sorry not to have been more help to you on Mary and Margaret.

    • The headstone was made per Charles Ritts and installed sometime in the 1950's. The birth date on the headstone says 29 Apr 1871. Not sure why the discrepancy with 12 Apr in the Irish records.
