      The headstones in the two rows of five graves on either side of the large family marker in the middle are identical in type of stone, color, and size. The engraving is almost identical but Emma C.'s marker does not have a small diamond in the middle of a double line across the top and all the other do.
      The one marked with an * are in-laws.
