NOTE: Death day is from newspaper death notice.

We were extremely fortunate in locating the top part of the marker today (26 May 2015). The marker was completely buried underground about 8 inches deep. After a meticulous search, we were unable to locate the bottom half of the marker which had the words "Aged 30 Years" as read by the DAR in 1941. After a thorough rinsing with plain water and scrubbing, the beautiful white marble was glistening!

NOTE: This marker was originally "seen and documented" in approximately 1941 when the Daughter's of the American Revolution did a census of this cemetery.
