Bert Ross, a young man killed in a mine accident.
Also killed in the mine accident was a young boy named William Hayden. I have created a page for him but unable to locate a cemetery that is why he is linked here.

The 1900 US Federal Census finds the family of Joseph Lawson living in Center, Woodson county, Kansas. Joseph is listed as working as day labor. Also in the home is his wife Angeline *[see footnote], children Bert R. age 18, Laura age 16, Jennie age 12, Ada age 11, Samuel age 5 and Ina age 1.

In memory of one of the many miners that lost their lives working in the Jasper county, Missouri lead and zinc mines. It was very dangerous work.
