Another Coon Sibling: Martha Lavenia
Martha Lavenia Coon is another one of my 3rd great aunts. She was the eldest daughter of Jacob Coon and wife Nancy Smith, and she was born in Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina. Martha was born 20 July 1810. She was an infant when her family migrated from South Carolina to Mississippi.
She was married to Rev. Peter McDonald.Both Rev. McDonald and Martha are interred in the Shady Grove Cemetery in Haynesville, Claiborne Parish, Louisiana.
Several of the tombstones for the family are difficult to read and are in need of repairs.
