BENNETT, KING, ROBERTS posted by Kimm --?-- on Monday, August 31, 1998

I have recently come across death information on a Samuel KING born 13 Aug 1877 and died Dec 1969 in Mercer County. He was the 2nd husband of my ggGrandmother Nancy (BENNETT/ROBERTS) KING and I am wondering if anyone has cemetery information for Mercer County. I am hoping that since he died there that he is also buried there. I am also hoping that his wife, Nancy, is buried with him as we have not been able to locate any death info on her as of yet. Their marriage took place in Allen County, Ohio in 1917 and after that we have no information. Any assistance with this would be very much appreciated.
