I will have to get the burial records list. I still haven't dug that out yet. I work a lot and worked over the weekend.

One thing that my Dad did correct me
on was that Phebe is his grandmother and married Sidney Fuller who passed in 1965. They are buried with the remainder of the Diffendaffer's. Alexander is there and must be Phebe's father. The headstone as I remember is 1848ish. But, I'm going home in a few weeks and will go back to the cemetery there in Mt. Salem and take another look. Cora is also a daughter of Sidney and Phebe Fuller.

I have more homework on all of this obviously, but, Cora died young and my grandmother only had one brother that survived along with her. Can't remember the name of the other child. I've never heard of any Cora in Northwood, IA. I grew up in Iowa and understand some Mason relatives were near Burlington, Tennant, IA, etc. But, not Norwwood. My Dad will be able to shed some light on this. I have a picture of the Diffendaffer's that he gave me that he stayed with when very young.

The cemetery is next to Charles Diffendaffer's old home, which is still there and the remains of his old barn, in which as very young kids we would watch him shear sheep.

I will get back to you with more.
