From the obit I have placed below you will see John Henry Wey's birthday was 1871 not 1872, Hariet died in 1872.
I have a question, do you know where Harriet is buried? I found Thomas and his second wife in Union Cemetery in Arrowsmith but not Harriet.
My great great Grandmother Mahalia Matlock was her sister.
