"This monument was erected by

Helen May Benton ~ 1925"

Upon further research, I've found that Mountain View Cemetery is in ALTADENA, CA. Alice's final resting place.

"Adams married Alice May Burnham on December 22, 1880. They had two daughters. Lucile was born in 1884, and Helen was born in 1892. Both daughters married and moved away, W E and Alice divided their time between Deadwood and Pasadena, California. Lucile died from typhoid fever in Michigan in 1912.

In June of 1925 W E Adams' life took a tragic turn. Alice, who was in California for the birth of their first grandchild, succumbed to cancer on June 6. Daughter Helen, distraught over her mother's death, went into early labor and died the following day. The baby, named Helen, lived only a few hours."
