Sorry it took so long to reply. We went to the Mannon Cemetery yesterday (8/8/02) to look for grave markers. This cemetery is located on the county line between Morgan and Owen Counties. Mattie did remarry, we think twice. No one can remember her second husband...but her remaining grandchildren in our Deem family knew her third husband, Mike Kriskey, as their grandpa and a very nice man who loved grandma very much. They are buried next to each other and a daughter of Mattie's by James Deem, Genevieve.
Mattie was born in 1889 (?) and died in 1949, the year I was born. Mike was born in Poland on March 28, 1890, and stowed aboard a ship coming to the US in the early 1900's. Her served in the Indiana 47th Infantry in WWI. He died in Indianapolis on February 22, 1958. Mattie's first husband, James Deem, is buried in the row in front of them. His dates show born 3/4/1879, died 10/4/1912. There is also an Alva Deem born 10/23/1876, died 2/1/54 in the row behind Mattie and Mike. This has to be a relative. We think Alva is a male, since the grave marker shows a female on it as well (Mary J. Stevens, 10/9/1876 to 4/8/1916). This is all we know. All of Mattie and James children are now dead and the grandchildren don't seem to know much.
