QUERY: Seeking the grave of Mary Warner KAGEY, wife of Stephen KAGEY. Mary was born 1835, daughter of Samuel WARNER. She married Stephen KAGEY in 1856 and they lived in Walnut Twp. adjacent to her parents for some time, then moved into Thurston. I think Mary died before 1897 since she is referred to as deceased in an 1897 Fairfield Co. partition abstract. Stephen lived until 1921 and is buried at the Licking County Home Cemetery. But I have never been able to locate Mary’s grave. Two daughters who died as children are buried at the Primitive Baptist Churchyard at Thurston. It’s possible Mary was buried at the WARNER family cemetery on Cherry Rd. in Walnut Twp. north of Baltimore, but I can find no stone or record. I’ve been searching for this for 25 years, and have looked at every page of the death records for the 1890s at the courthouse in Lancaster. Can anyone provide a clue? – Mike Kagay, Princeton, NJ
