 *In the Scott Co. Cemetery Records there is a record of two small graves in a hallway of a barn on land where Jesse & Lucinda once lived.  It is speculated that 7 and 8 died during a terrible winter, at the time the ground was frozen so deep the only place that they were able to dig graves to bury the girls was in the barn hallway.
