(1840-1919) & his wife, Mary A. (1844-1934. They had a daughter Amanda E.
(1865-1947) also buried there. Was there a relationship to the GUNN family?

Sammuel D. is unidentified.
From my research and Millie Frances (MILLS) ALDRED's history, I have the
William MILLS married #1 Nancy P. FELTER & they lived in Sharonville,
Hamilton Co., OH & were the parents of Philemon Elmore... above. Then
William married Julia Ann TOOLEY. Cemetery records give the following dates
for William that differ from the GEDCOM.
William 12/31/1811--9/20/1866 Buried Perkinsville Cemetery
GedCom says: 31 Dec 1810--19 May 1865
Julia A. 8/23/1820--7/30/1903 Buried Perkinsville Cemetery
Her GedCom agrees with cemetery records.
