John McQuilken Lyons 1868 - 1954
Mary Levenia nee Preston 1869 - 1950

[John was the son of James Riley Lyons and Anna W. McQuilken]

This small white stone appears broken and placed back in the ground. All that is readable is: In Memory of Mary McKentey.

The Marissa Cemetery Book states the following:
Mary Mc Kentey dau. of James R. & Annie W. Lyons, 12 Mar. 1873, 5 June 1873, 2 mo. 23 d.

George 1870 - 1945
Mary E. 1870 - 1950

[George was the son of James Riley Lyons and Anna W. McQuilken. Mary's maiden name was Burris.]

This stone for Mary Elizabeth Lyons is a separate stone for the wife of George. See combined stone above.

This stone is for the infant son of George and Mary Elizabeth Lyons who was born and died in 1896.
