The above person is buried in the Cunningham Cemetery. Mary E. Cunningham was the mother of the above deceased person. His date of death (Day) isn't known as he was found frozen along the rail road tracks in the South Tunnel area by children on their way to school. I lived with my g-aunt who was a neighbor to the Cunninghams. The above never had a head stone, just a metal marker. You can find this in Alexander's Funeral records book.
