In July 2000, we made a trip to Lincolnshire, England. The church of St. Mary the Virgin was surrounded by tombstones. The area was very well kept. Unfortunately, most of the stones were so badly worn and illegiable. We were unable to view any records. It would help if someone was able to see these records as to where people were buried. We could then possibly establish when our people died. [Larry & Kathy McCurdy]
