Re: Joyce Vivian Hunt/MacAloney/Welton

Hi Penny:

Thanks. I think it¹s them as well. See obits below.

He appears to be buried alone, without his wife, in Economy Cemetery. Wife,
Emily (?) appears to be still alive in 1994 as Mrs. Emily Hussey in

A search by someone on the Herald Obit CD under ³Hussey² / ³Hunt² might
produce her obit as she¹s alive in 1994.
