Sarah G Symons
What I can tell you about this lady is whats written on her homemade head stone, Born in England 1848, Died Virginia City NV 1924 Age 66. Her headstone is easy to miss as its almost buried by grass and dirt and I only found in by luck. (And knowing how to look for buried stones.)
I'll try to find out what I can about her life ASAP.
Untill then Sarah Rest in Peace under your simple stone.
