Surveyed by Howard Lehman

(Exact date unknown, sometime late 1970’s)

Howard Lehman and his mother, Sallie Stoner, have been added to this survey

 

 

 

Howard Lehman was born William Howard Lehman on Sept 1, 1910 in Lafayette, Mississippi. He tragically lost his life in October of 1993 during a burglary at his home in Parkin.  

 

The following information was supplied by Mary Nell Burnett:

 

Howard’s mother was Sallie Orr French. His maternal grandparents William and Frances French. Howard’s father worked on the Mississippi River and drowned in a boating accident when Howard was about 6 years old. After his father’s death, his mother moved to Parkin where she met and married Frank Stoner on July 20, 1919. Their marriage is recorded in the Cross County marriage record book N, pg.28.

 

Frank Stoner raised both Howard and his brother Hugh, as if they were his own sons. Frank died on October 4, 1933, and his wife, Sallie French Stoner, never remarried. She died August 1987 and was buried alongside her husband in Stoner Cemetery.

 

Frank Stoner's parents were, Dr. John Stoner and Kate Louisa Huxtable Stoner. Frank's half-brother was Robley D. Stoner, who was the great grandfather of Mary Nell Burnett. They are all buried in the Stoner Cemetery. Dr. John Stoner along with his second wife's family, the Huxtable's, arrived in Cross County in January of 1871. They had moved from Minonk, Woodford County, Illinois. John Stoner was born in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania and the Huxtable family was from England and Canada.

 

Howard Lehman never married or had any children of his own. Although he is no longer with us, his memory will live on through his dedication in preserving the history of the cemeteries in and around the Parkin area.
