RECORD #3530:  Melvin, Mary (?????).
I believe this to be Mary (Newcomb) Melvin.  Passing at the age of 70
in 1906, she would have been born abt.1836 and having her children
1866-1874) between the ages of 30-38.  The comment also mentions her
son, James Melvin was present at death, still married, farmer's wife.  Mary
Newcomb had a son James and her husband, Michael, was a farmer.

RECORD #3536:  Melvin, Mary (NEWCOMB?).
I don't believe this to be Mary (Newcomb) Melvin.  Passing at the age
of 70 in 1888, she would have been born abt.1818 and having her children
(1866-1874) between the ages of 48-56!  The comment mentions her son,
Michael Melvin was present at death.  I haven't (at least not yet)
found a record that Michael Melvin and Mary Newcomb had a son Michael.
