In the book, CEMETERY AND DEATH RECORDS OF WARREN COUNTY, IOWA 1980, page 135 between the graves of William Scott, died Mar 22, 1871 age 55y 5m 6d and Absolom Scott, died Jun 9, 1885 age 62y 7m Co D 34th Inf Vol is an entry that says "broken stone died Mar 30, 1873 age 80y 6m."

That broken stone would be the tombstone of William and Absolom's mother, Charity Scott born 1792/3 North Carolina and died Warren Co, Iowa as stated.

Her husband was William Scott who died probably in Wayne Co, Ind prior to 1850 when she and the children are listed on the 1850 census in Warren Co, Ind. They are then on the Warren Co, Iowa census 1860, 1870.
