***********************************************
The picture shows the burial site of Josie Aldridge. Her grave is located in Area 2, Block 126, lot 1, grave 3. According to family records, Oscar & Mary are buried in this same cemetery, but their exact location has not yet been determined. In this time frame (1917), all burials were on this side of the cemetery so they are likely nearby to Josie.
