If the dates on these stones are unreadable, I suppose it is because they are very old. If that is true then here is the data on these two:

Young Sprinkle was born ca 1837 in TN, most likely Maury Co., The son of Micajah Sprinkle and Margaret Ball.
Young S. Ball was born ca 1835 in TN, most likely Maury Co., the son of Young Ball and Margaret Sprinkle

These families came out of TN, some into MO first and then early into AR. The associated families are Sprinkle, Ball, and Bryants (various spellings) but somehow changed to O'Briant/O'Bryan/O'Brien after they arrived in AR. Reason is unknown.
Thanks for the work you do which is so helpful to the work of genealogists.
