Most of the obituaries of the area don't start until 1900 or later.
There were several cemeteries moved when the Norfork Dam was built.
I didn't find either name listed in the Cemetery book.
The Corp made a list of names of the people moved and this list was used
when making the cemetery book of Baxter County.

> My g grandmother, Mary Ann (Blankenship) Green, wife of Marion Green,

> If so, is anyone working on the obits from those newspapers--the local

> Marion's 2nd wife, Martha Clementine Ivie (Ivey?) probably died about
> 1891.
> She was probably buried where the lake is now, but does not appear in the
> Hand Cemetery listing. Was there another cemetery those graves were moved
> to besides Hand?
> Where might an obit for her have appeared for local news?
