Inscription:
Stone broken by vandalism.
Broken stone with the correct date for Rosanna is missing the first part which probably said,
"Rosanna Shoemake Rogers wife of."
Or the tombstone could say "Rosanna wife of."
The remaining caption is,
Elijah Rogers Died Oct. 13, 1880,
Aged 45y 6m 10 days.

 
Burial:
Madison Cemetery
Mahaska County
