Found on my 2012 trip when I was taking a photo of Sarah Walls Emerson's stone. Back side of Emerson monument looked blank until I caught a glimpse of some writing as my shadow ran across the stone.
NOTE: Granite was introduced after 1833, so this is either a delayed or replacement grave marker.
<<<< This is a great example of CARING who your ancestors' siblings married. If I hadn't decided to go back and take a photo of my Mary Ann Walls' sister Sarah Walls Emerson, I wouldn't have noticed their father on the back of the monument. see WALLS-LEAVITT Genealogy link here.
