*This cemetery has been known by three names:  Old Marion Cemetery, Pioneer Cemetery, and the Quarry Street Cemetery.
Martha was age 57, not 77, when she died (See next source.)

8.  Birthdate calculated using Ben Buckner's JavaScript Birthday Calculator.
Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
Martha L. SEARCH 31 Dec 1870 10d 10m 77y 21 Feb 1793
Sarah J. SEARCH 16 Jul 1845 01d 04m 00y 15 Mar 1845
Charles S. SEARCH 13 Aug 1847 25d 02m 00y 19 May 1847
(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
We know Martha died between 1870 and 1880, and we know she was 57 in 1870, so it appears it is her age at death that is wrong, not her year of death.
