**   These headstones had been moved from their bases and placed by a tree for mowing.  When I placed them back in the bases some didn't fit properly meaning the correct order is lost. See top link for details of restoration.

  The original headstone was reconstructed from broken pieces in 2004.  There's an obituary from 1890 so death year must be wrong.
