Hello, I read the story about the infant marker of Martin Brooks. I was wondering what your intuition tells you about where the marker was originally. My feeling is it was some kids (vandals) took it from where was placed originally and after realizing how stupid they were being, tossed it out of a car.
There was another instance a couple years ago where workers were doing utility work in University Place in a restaurant parking lot and found a large spire type marker from 100 years ago. Obviously moved there to what have been a dumping ground near 27th west in U.P. Again I think kids took from a cemetery and just dumped it once they sobered up.
I did some research and found it may have been originally placed out by Orting, based on census info on the family. I think it might have had a connection with the Older part of the Orting Old Soldiers Home Cemetery . I was new at that time to Find A Grave and couldn't figure how to use their burial index.
If you email me I can send you a picture of the O'Hare tombstone found in U.P. It would be nice to know if it was ever reunited it with it's original location. It would be an interesting project if it hasn't been properly returned.
Thank you for your work and an interesting memorial.
