McCuin Family

Narrative

John McCuin was the son-in-law of the farm owner. His name was James Beaumennt (also spelled Bomount). The familysearch.org website has John's death year at 1907. The information we have said it was 1887. He was only 42 if he died in 1887. They have his wife's death year the same as we do, 1891. She was only 46.

The McCuin family said they believe there are two adults and a child buried there but what if it's James (death date not known) and Frances Bomount (died 1881), and their daughter Mildred McCuin, who died in 1891. What if John lived to 1907? The Bomounts died and the McCuin's take over the farm? More research is needed.

Ron Turner 2001 Information on this cemetery from Betty Duley. I did not find the graves and could not find anyone that knew the location.
David Cuff July, 2019 I visited the cemetery at request of neighborhood resident Jack Hardgrove. The graves are not visable. Elizabeth McCuin, who lives south of the development said they believe two adults and one child were buried in the cemetery at the base of the tree. It's believed the tree consummed the graves. Betty Duley provided names in 2001. At the time of their deaths, the farm was owned by the wife's father, according to the 1880 census.
