Daughter of Rev. James A. Lay and Iris Isabelle Grant. First wife of Emmanuel Cross, Sr. Death date is a little sketchy but I believe this to be correct as Emmanuel did not remarry until 1880 but his daughter, also Amanda, was born in 1878, leading me to believe the Amanda Lay Cross did not die until around that time.

Known children of Emmanuel and Amanda:
Alice Cross Phillips (1868-1921)
William Cross (1870-BEF 1880)
John Cross (1872-AFT 1880)
Lovis Cross Gray (1873-1934)
Emmanuel Cross, Jr. (1876-?)
Amanda Cross Aleshire (1878-1935)

Likely no stone but I am reasonably convinced that Amanda is buried here as this is her family cemetery.
