Inscription

Buell's grave also is unmarked for a different reason. Gustavus trustees removed the headstone because they worried it was getting damaged due to pranksters thieving and vandalizing.

The inscription on the headstone says, ''In memory of the young, beautiful and innocent Frances Maria Buell who was butchered by her stepfather, Ira W. Gardner, on Aug. 8, 1832 in the 16th year of her age.

"Death chilled this fair fountain ere sorrow hath stained it. Twas frozen in all the pure light of its course. But she sleeps till the sunshine of heaven unchains it. To water that Eden where first was its source."
