Thanks to I remember when. . . (#47097113)
for SAC containing the following information:

Her middle initial is B instead of M.
The stone has that and also the cemetery records are listed as Ellen B Phelps.

Her grave location is:
Family Estate Bl 45 Lot 20 Sp 3


I would assume the M is a mistake, unless it's the initial of her maiden name. I certainly wish this practice had never started, and they would stop it.
