There was a headstone as tall as me, about 5'5". The name Spaulding was carved on the base. Unfortunately, there is no first name. It looked like there had been floral carvings or etchings on it at one time, but are now almost completely smooth. I couldn't make out if there had ever been a name or dates on it at one time. Leaning on it was a small headstone: Jessie, infant son of WM. S. & O. A. Spaulding Aug. 11 [?, not sure if second number is a 1] 1873 [not positive this was a 3]. Next to and to the North of tall stone was:
