Jeffrey Craig Duskin

Born: June 7, 1849 in Mason Co., Kentucky

Father: Joseph Shepherd

Mother: Frances Bettis

Married: William Todden - October 17, 1871 in Wayne Co., Iowa


Died: May 27, 1899 in Wayne Co., Iowa

Burial: Kilbourn-Rankin-Brown Cemetery, Warren Twp., Wayne Co., Iowa
The cemetery is located in the middle of a farmer's field with no direct access.  Many of the stones were broken off and stacked near a tree.  Mary's stone was broken off at the time of my visit in the early 2000's but was lying where she is buried next to her mother. The photo of her stone on her Find-a-Grave memorial shows it intact and may have been taken before my visit or perhaps has been repaired since.
