Debra,

I saw one of your posts where you listed the birth year of Mary Overacker as 1783. I saw a post (can't remember where) showing that she was born in 1804 and lived until 1879. She was Cowles Mead's 3rd wife and Cowles was her 2nd husband. I'm wanting to find out more information about Mary Overacker Magruder and also Mary Mills (Cowle's 2nd wife).

I believe the marker at the Mead Cemetery in Clinton, MS is for Mary Mills, not Mary Green (Cowle's 1st wife). I have seen the newspaper articles stating that Mary Green and Cowles were married in 1807. If the dates on the marker at the Mead cemetery are correct, "Mary Lilly" would have been 10 years and 23 days old when she married Mead. That is why I believe the marker to be MARY LILLY MILLS, although I have never seen a middle name for Mary Green or Mary Mills, other than on that marker.

Any info you have on any of the Marys would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ron Collins
