The Robert Clark stone could not at first be located. After the footstone was found a probe was used to locate the headstone under the ground about 3 inches. It was of course found to the west of the footstone. The headstone was found broken in half, but the two parts were set up and photographed by propping the top up with a cut stick. The base half of the two broken parts was installed into the ground so it would stand and the top was laid against the base to reinforce the standing position of the base, see photo #6329.
