Biographical information comes from census records, vital statistics, and marriage records from and the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index. The grave is documented by Duane Lester's, "Rural Cemeteries of McDonough County, Illinois, Volume II, Bethel-Industry." According to Lester's notes, the stone was inscribed: "son of E. & L.; d. Aug 15, 1872, age [unreadable]." As it exists, the stone is readable when foil was used to gently highlight the inscription.
