GMother:Nettie Irene Leonard, nee Aten GGMother:Rachel Frances Aten, nee Coleman GGFather:Marion Aten GGGMother:Abigail Aten, nee Cleveland GGGFather:John Aten All of the above are buried in "New Payson Cemetery, Payson, Illinois"Across the river from Hannibal MO & south of Quincy Illinois.

My mom, her 2 sisters, and 2 brothers were raised by Rachel & Marion in Payson, and the Hannibal City Directory shows mom, dad, ggfather Marion and ggmother Rachel living in the same residence when my oldest brother was born in 1926.
My Mother died 2 yrs. ago; she would have been 94 in July and died in May.She truely loved her grandmother & grandfather.Her mother died when mom was 5 and then her father (long story there) committed suicide in Pawnee, Neb. where he lived w/children, 2nd. wife & child. Marion & Rachel brought Nettie's children to live w/them - not without causing a rift between she and her sister's family -that was never healed to my knowledge.My grandfather had married Nettie's cousin.
Have some photos of Marion & Rachel - if I get scanner reconected again. I could send them to you.You would like the one of Marion, he is sitting with American flag around him.
