Tombstone Tuesday: Martha J. Lynn
Martha Jane Lynn is my great-grandmother. The daughter of Edna Ann (Cole) and John Henry Lynn, she was born 14 April 1869 in Prince William County and died sometime before 1899. Little is known about Martha, and she remains one of my most frustrating brick walls. Who was the father of her child, my grandfather Earl Lynn (b. 11 October 1891 in PWCo.) and when did Martha pass away? The answers are out there, somewhere ...
Martha is buried in the Cole-Ashby family cemetery beside her mother and her grandparents, Lawrence and Jane Cole.
