October 24, 2011, note from Susan Sain, "I looked at every head stone and was not able to find your request. There are many unmarked graves and damaged headstones in this cemetery. I'm sorry that I could not help you." I appreciate her time & efforts. To keep another from duplicating the search, the stone photo request has been removed.
Many thanks to jlowery000 for posting Ella's obituary.
