Query: Looking for information on the families of Kearney Cotton Kirby of Uniontown. My GGGrandmother was his daughter and she is supposedly buried in one of the Uniontown cemeteries. I have pictures of KC Kirby's headstone, and Charles and Hannah Kirby's headstone, but was unable to find any Lane Headstones. They would be John D/B Lane and Suphronia Elizabeth (possibly Elizabeth Suphronia) LANE. John died around 1890 and she died around 1894. Both were in their early 40s. She died of TB and we don't know what John died of. He is supposedly buried near the "new schoolhouse" by Carter's Mill where he worked. Will share all information I have. Thanks in advance.
