I thought ancestry would notify me when I had a response - so far they haven't. Sorry to be so late responding!
I have Walter and Mahala - she died at age 101. Walter was john's father. John married my great-grandmother, Amanda Emmons Smith, after her husband died in NY. I have seen her tombstone in Warren, MI. It is John's and a small "Washington " monument. Couldn't find her's until I thought to look on the back of his! There it was. Thanks for writing.
