It was an easy mistake to make with the wrong information in the obituary. Thanks for making the change.

Isaac King is buried in Forest Grove cemetery with his first wife, Elizabeth, and four of their children. His second wife Josephine Saunders King is buried in Clarinda. The Bedford obituary was incorrect.
Isaac King, a former slave, died at his home in this city last Saturday evening at 8 o'clock, age 74 years. He had been a sufferer from rheumatism at intervals for about ten years. The late Mr. King was born in Mississippi. His last experience as a slave was in Andrew county, Mo. He left there in 1853 and moved to Taylor county, Ia. About five years later he bought 100 acres of land eleven miles southeast of Bedford. Ten years ago he sold that property. Five years later he bought a residence property in Blockton for which he paid $1000. Last March he rented his property and with his family came to Clarinda, where he spent the remainder of his days. He was twice married. His first wife and four of their children are buried six miles southeast of Bedford. His second wife and two children by the first and two by his second wife survive. The two former are Anna, who is married and lives at Savannah, Mo., and Alba King. The two children by the second wife are Fred King and Glen King. the surviving widow was formerly Miss Josephine Saunders, and is a sister of Mrs. T.G. Jones of Nodaway township, Page county, and Mrs. Sallie Black of College Springs. The late Mr. King was a member of the Baptist church for over thirty years, being first a member of the white Baptist church of Bedford, and then the colored church there after it was organized. The remains were taken Tuesday over the Keokuk and Western railroad to Gravity, and from that place were to be conveyed to the vicinity of the cemetery six miles southeast of Bedford, for the funeral and burial Wednesday, the interment being beside the graves of his first wife and deceased children. The surviving widow and children and Mrs. T.G. Jones accompanied the remains from Clarinda.

Could I ask if you could delete the extra photos on these above memorials also? Thanks for removing the extra photos from my parents' memorials.
Personally, I do not add additional photos if the one present on the memorial is clear and able to be read.

Thanks Julia. The headstone has his year of birth as 1868, instead of 1867 as it should be. The grave was initially unmarked. The headstone was added many years later by his youngest son.
