Mineral Spring/William F. Fagan
Hi Diane,
Got your message about William F. Fagan

Honestly I can't tell you anything. I went to Mineral Spring a few times while I lived in Providence (04-07) and a few hundred of the memorials on Find a Grave for that cemetery were done by me.
I do seem to recall that I took that particular picture because I was surprised to see something so new there. But I didn't know him, or how it got there. Was completely random.
Sounds like you have a mystery on your hands. Could a record have been misplaced? Could a family have done an unauthorized burial (would assume these would have to be cremains)?
Have you checked for an obituary? That might give you next of kin & the name of a funeral home.
It's great that it is being cleaned up some...I know I found it to be in pretty sad shape. Interesting cemetery for sure though.
If you ever find out what the story is behind Mr. Fagan, I'd love an update. You've definitely got me curious now.
