Classification: Query
Surnames: Dunn-Nutty-Wallace

I have been researching a Sarah Dunn for a number of years, without being able to determine her parents. She was born in Johnson County in 1834; but spent most of her live in Massac County. She married a Gail Nutty on 15 Jan 1857 and had four children. She then married a John Wallace on 29 Apr 1869 and had four additional children. She died on 11 Jan 1930 in Metropolis, being the oldest living white woman in town. She is buried in Masonic Cemt. Her two husbands may also be buried there. Gail died in 1863. I am related to Sarah and Gail. My questions are: 1) Is Gail also buried in Masonic Cemt. and what was the burial date? 2) Are there in County records that might help determine Sarah's parents or a death certificate that might list them?
