Richard Elson
Inscription on front of monument
Richard
died Aug 25, 1879 according to the
death records. Inscription is incorrect
Frederica S.
Inscription on left side of monument
Sarah Ann
Inscription on right side of monument
RICHARD ELSON, (1) FREDERICA SOPHIA,
AND (2) SARAH ANN ELSON
Some records contain her name being spelled Fredericka,
her stone has it spelled with only the 'C'.  It is possible that
the stone was erected after the passing of Richard, by
family members. There are smaller, white stones
surrounding the monument that have only initials for
Frederica and Richard and Sarah on the other. One stone
was not legible. (Possible that this is the stone for Charlotte
who died at birth in 1828)  If the monument was put there
after Richard's death, a misspelling may have occurred.
