Tombstone Tuesday: Margaret & Abiathar Newton, Mt. Union Cemetery, Benton Co, OR



Margaret Delilah Keyes Newton rests beside her husband Abiathar B. Newton.

Although Margaret Delilah Keyes was the youngest daughter of my ggg grandparents David Lowery Keyes and Susan Jane Ward Keyes, she was the first to marry. The 1875 wedding was a big affair for the Keyes family and the occasion for many family photographs.

Below is the wedding picture of Margaret Delilah Keyes and Abiathar Barret Newton. The shared their lives for nearly 52 years before Margaret passed away. Two years later, Abiathar followed her. They are buried in the Keyes area of the Mt. Union Cemetery, near the little town Philomath in Benton County, Oregon.
