Do you have any dates for John B. Jones who is buried in the Neillsville City Cemetery and do you know for certain where Lovilla is buried? Stan

Thanks, Stan, for your reply. (Also, a special "thank you" to Crystal Wendt for her transcription work.)

I don't know for certain but I am a certain that Lovilla is an aunt of my mother, Charity Lovilla Jones. We are descendants of the same Edwin White, born in Marion, NY. I would be very interested in any information you might share about the family.
