Tombstone Tuesday – Maria “Minnie” McCormack

This is where the tombstone of Maria “Minnie” Bedina (McCormack) Barnes should be. She would be my great grand Aunt. Maria or Minnie was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan on 16 Apr 1867 and died on 9 Dec 1963 in Niles, Michigan. I am not sure why she doesn’t have some sort of tombstone. She is buried in the same cemetery, Silverbrook, as her younger sister, Katherine (McCormack) Ingleright. Both she and her sister Katherine were alive when I was born although our branches of the family didn’t know about each other.

Her parents are Michael and Catherine McCormack. I posted about her son in “Wednesday’s Child – Charles Harold Barnes.” She was married to Charles Eli Barnes, a ship captain on the Great Lakes. It would be great if someday, Minnie could get a headstone.
