Long Description:
The Woodmen of the World monument is a standard model, although it is less common to see one made of red granite. Unfortunately, the sculptor made a mistake and put "Burried" instead of "Buried". Private Kelley was a casualty of disease, and his cenotaph has a simple inscription:

In Memory of
Prt. Ollie P.
Kelley

2-20-1893
