That is possible; but so many stones and records have been destroyed, that the marker could have been lost. I may have given some wrong info on Charles Shaw second wife; Mary Huff SHAW. My records indicated she was Mary Huff, but I had no proof. Then I found Wesley Clement Shaw's death certificate, which gives her maiden name as KELSO, so I changed my record from HUFF to KELSO. Recently I was working on the line of Samantha CLARK, who is living with Charles SHAW family in the 1880 Census of and is listed as a Niece. Marriage records of Fulton County, show Samantha was a BERRY before her marriage and widowhood to Emery CLARK. Census records indicate Samantha Was the daughter of Willis Berry and wife Dorothy. Going further back to the 1850 Fulton Co., Census Willis BERRY and wife Dorothy have Lucinda KELSO and a child Mary HUFF, living with them. Dorothy's maiden name according to the Illinois marriage records; was KELSO. Therefore Mary Huff was raised by the KELSO's and BERRYs. Samantha CLARK is a niece to Mary HUFF SHAW.
