The stone says NICEDEMUS but believe this is not correct.
Nicedemus is such a rare spelling that for someone searching for this family, we have listed it under Nicodemus.
The family name in the records is spelled NICODEMUS.

Martinsburg Herald Blair County PA 1905
Mrs. Joseph NICODEMUS, whose maiden name was Catharine Elizabeth KNIPPLE and who was a native of Bedford County, died at her home in Marion, Iowa October 24th.
[the notice in the Martinsburg Herald of Blair Co. is probably because the Nicodemus family had a large presence there. Blair Co. PA is next to Bedford Co. PA-the Knipple family lived in the Napier Twp. & St. Clair Twp. area of Bedford Co. PA which has the towns of Schellsburg, New Paris, & Spring Hope.]

[Thank you CJeanealogy]
One of eight children [of John H. Knipple & Elizabeth Hull].
Catharine Elizabeth Knipple was married to Joseph Nicodemus on 29 Feb. 1863 in Pennsylvania [Napier Twp. Bedford Co. PA probably by the minister of the Hull Free Will Baptist Church in New Paris] & came west in 1864.
She was born 24 Oct. 1842 [the first child of John H. Knipple & Elizabeth Hull & probably named after her grandmother Catharine Elizabeth Winegardner Hull] and was from a family of eight [We have only been able to identify seven].

Towns near where she would have been born are New Paris & Schellsburg in Napier Twp. Bedford Co. PA & just over the township line would be the village of Spring Hope in St. Clair Twp. now divided into East St. Clair Twp.
Napier Twp. was at one time a part of St. Clair Twp.
The road that Spring Hope is located on leads to Fishertown which was the center of the Quaker area and Dunnings Creek MM.
