There are several field stone markers here, I have
suspicions as to who else might be buried here, but we'll probably never know.
Tragic stories often come to light when reading
gravestones. Henry and his pregnant wife Sarah lost four young children in two weeks of December 1862. In May Sarah gave birth
to Willis on the 21st, and passed away herself shortly thereafter. In less than six months Henry had buried four
children and his wife.
