Sometime after the family cemetery was mapped in 1987, this stone and the matching footstone was taken from the cemetery. The map drawn in 1987 shows that at that time the stone was leaning against the fence of the cemetery as replacement stones had been put in the cemetery. Last year (2008) the tombstone and footstone were returned to the family that now owns the property where the cemetery is located and the stone is now safely stored so it doesn't disappear again. The newer stone is in the cemetery.
