She was originally interred at the now defunct Abbey Mausoleum in Arlington, Va. (Find-A-Grave has a cemetery listing for the Abbey Mausoleum and has some historical notes there.) The "A" in a circle on these crypt markers is the indicator that these remains were transferred from Abbey.

Frances Anne's crypt marker in the photo has errors in both the birth and death dates. (See the 1960 obit and death notice below the three photos at right -- click on the "view all images" link.)

According to attached obituary and death notice her parents were Howel and Elizabeth Hays Jones.

The obituary does not mention her name "Frances", but it is confirmed in a historical mention of a house she once lived in called "The Lilacs", in Provincetown, Mass. The following is an extract from that house description:

"Home to two whaling captains in succession, Elisha Burch and Luther P. Hatch, 4 Nickerson Street was acquired in 1932 by the artist Frances Anne (Jones) Akers (±1874-1960), an alumna of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her husband, Warren Newton Akers (±1877-1934), the assistant vice president of the Corporation Trust Company (now CT Corporation). Anne Akers’s father, Howell Jones, was director of the Atcheson, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad and Warren Akers played an important role in national railroad administration during World War I. He died in this house at the age of 57 but Mrs. Akers stayed on at least through the 1940s, opening the place up to the annual house tours."
