Is Sarah DALTON also buried next to Margaret? She is one of her daughters. Margaret's other two daughters are Alice and Emma....... as well as Minnie EDSALL. And William is her only son.
Sarah married George Washington DALTON in Shelby Co. IA in 1877. They were the parents of twin boys before Sarah died 7 Dec 1879. She is buried in Bowman's Grove Cemetery - though I haven't personally seen her marker and can't tell you where her burial is located. So I wonder if she might also be next to her mother?
Curiously, in the 1900 census, Margaret's birth date was shown as Apr 1831 - which seems to agree with her census records. And the 1839 birth year doesn't add up to the 70 years that she was shown to be at the time of her death. Looks like a mistake was made on her marker.
