Elijah Meeks born Aug 1843 died Apr 9, 1915 {view headstone photo}

small stone that maybe a marker for a child-uncertain

"At Rest" Captain Brad Roberts no dates {view headstone photo} (note added 01/25/2011 by David Johnson: Caution- this photo no way matches this description, because it has dates and a different rank and name. I do not know what has occurred here.)

Knowledge of these 2 graves were brought to Gwen's attention when in Grundy Co.  They are in the middle of a cow pasture unprotected from the cows. It appears that there may have been other stones but they are no longer there.
