The three Marys and Hiram

2016-07-15 - Photo From research by Jean Shisler.
In the photo at left, three women, in the center is the elusive Mary Ann Bryant Paul born in your fair town, Columbia, KY, 27 Oct 1827. The Mary to the left is Mary Ann Bryant Paul's daughter, Mary Margaret Paul Craft. The young Lady at right in the photo of the three Marys is my grandma, Mary Myrtle Russell Dillman (I'm a Dillman by birth). The photo at right shows her husband Hiram D. Craft. He is standing beside the tombstone he made for her. He wrote the poem inscribed. She is buried at the Ripley Oak Park Cemetery in Ripley, OK beside Hirum Craft.
