Long Description:
These two short headstones stand together near the eastern end of the cemetery. Two rounded, hand-crafted slabs of concrete -- which looks a lot like marble -- sandwich a watered-down mixture of sand and concrete. The inscriptions themselves were inked in green, although the death date on Mr. Burrows's broken headstone received no such treatment when he was buried in 1987. They're drawn fairly straight, and read:

Ruby M. Burrows
Born-11-19-19-23
Pased-2-7-19-58

Orville E. Burrows
Born-3-22-19-16
Died-1-28-19-87
