Birth: Jun. 18, 1817

NE Quarter, Section 5, Versailles Township, Brown County, Illinois


A lone stone stands in the center of a field on the Kate Logsdon farm in Northeast quarter of Section 5, Versailles Township.

The inscription reads:
Harriett, wife of H. F. Davis died July 10, 1848, aged 31 yrs. 22 days.

This woman is supposed to have died with cholera on the way west and was buried at the side of road at that time. The road has since been put on township line so the stone is in a field. It is in good condition.
