Adaran's stone is actually beautiful white marble. She has stalks of wheat and sprigs of ivy on her stone and the inscription reads:


June 14, 1891
aged 56 years

Silently slumbering I am here
Beneath the dreary sod
Waiting the summons from on high
To arise and meet my God.

I knew I'd found all of them except for GGG Grandmother Adaran and her son James, but where to start. The entire right 1/3 of the plot was still covered and I was already tired and the sky was getting stormy. I began digging by Adaran's sister and hit something immediately. Adaran was buried next to her sister and just behind Benjamin.

The foundation for Adaran's stone is just above her sisters (to the left of the white concrete block I was using as a fulcrum to lift and turn over Adaran's stone). If you look to the left you can see the tree that grew up through the gate and has bent it totally around the tree.

The white stone in the top right is GGG Grandfather Benjamin Upton's, and to the left, the base and the pedestal.
Below that is his daughter Florence McNorell's stone, and to the left of it, the base. Just above Florence's base you can see a small marker, that of her son Benjamin Lafayette McNorell.
Below Florence's and to the left is a small flat piece of what looks like concrete - the next trip proved this to be the base for daughter Sissy's stone.
Below this is the base and stone for another daughter Annie L. Upton. For each grave there is a head stone and a foot stone and all the grave stones are facing east.
In the photo you can also see the once perfect but still beautiful iron fence.
