Numbered Markers
Do you have a picture of one of the numbered markers? I'm curious as I'm working on a project up at the General N.B. Baker Library in Sutherland and would like to include one with it. My email at the library is

I found this article about this ladies death. You may post if you wish.

A Husband Finds the Body of His Wife Lying in a Pool of Water - Supposed Murder

Sibely, Iowa, May 10 - Mrs. Carrie Farrell left the home of her husband at seven o'clock Monday morning for a visit to her parents. two miles away. Leaving there at six o'clock that evening she took a diagonal course across the fields to the main road. By this route she was obliged to pass an unfrequented bridge across a slough. She was on horseback and her only encumbrance was a basket of eggs, which she carried in her left hand. Upon leaving her father's house this was the last seen of her alive. Farrell thought nothing strange of her absence during the night, as she was accustomed to remain over night with her relatives. When her horse came home riderless the next morning search was a t once instituted. Lying fave down in a pool of water was the lifeless form of his wife. On the left side of the face, just below the eye, was a deep scar, indicative of s sudden and powerful blow. Other bruises were about the face and shoulders. On the ground, forty rods distant, was the basket of eggs unharmed, another indication that foul play had been done. The matter is being investigated by the entire neighborhood. The deceased was highly respected and it was not known that she had a single enemy.

Hi, Nancy,

I was able to get a clear detail shot of the name and dates on this memorial today. Would you be so kind as to remove yours with the red chalk? Thanks much! ;)

I have sent an edit to you on 11/24/2015 requesting that you delete "still living" from the "note". You have entered a date of death (2012) so please remove the "note" from this memorial. Thank you

RE: Duplicate - Rosettie J Hite Myers
I think the "anonymous" creator of the other memorial may be a contributor who is mostly inactive. I have found that If I make corrections through the edit tab on memorials he/she has created, there rarely is a response, but they get automatically approved by the system after the three-week waiting period. I have made quite a few corrections in this cemetery using that process. You also can ask the administrators to merge the two records--I never do that so I'm not familiar with how successful it is. I have no personal interest in this particular memorial--just noticed the duplicate when I was posting photos. Thanks for your response.
