John Daniel (Sr) STONESIFER
Nothing is known about her parents or background. It seems likely that her family came to the area about the time her husband. It is also likely that she was one or so years younger than her husband. As was quite ofter the case at that time. Thus her year of birth would have been around 1733.
She is likely to be one of the first persons to be buried at St Mary's Lutheran which was organized there on May 31, 1762. Practically none of the tombstones from that early time have survived.
