* - In the plot with Hiram and Elizabeth are the gravestones of Lovie Irene Cockayne and a child named Ida Loughary. There are other Cockayne and Loughary children buried in the plot, but these are the only markers that remain. - Ida Loughary was the daughter of William and Harriet Buxton Loughary. Harriet Buxton was from WV although William was not. Harriet and William met and married in Iowa and were neighbors of Hiram and Elizabeth. I have tried to determine if Harriet had a familial relationship with Hiram or Elizabeth, but I have come up empty. It is an intriguing question though as the Loughary children were buried with the Cockayne children, and the markers are alike suggesting their relationship was more than casual. William and Harriet Loughary eventually moved on to Oregon, and Harriet wrote a book about her experience on the overland trail. The book is a well-known piece of pioneer literature. This is just an interesting aside and goes to show how the family story just keeps morphing. - Jane Weaver, September 21, 2010.
