Note on Wife: Margaret M. SHELLABARGER (2)

Burial record has name as Margaret Shellabarger Axtell, but using the American system of maiden name becoming middle name it is assumed that she is the spouse of an Axtell. There is also a connection to Philetus Morrison Axtell [12778] (1834-1907) due to her being buried in the same cemetery. Most likely the spouse of one of Philetus' sons but which is not documented in axb45.ged. [Jon Axtell]
