Long Description:
This was quite an unexpected find in Ethel Reece Cemetery in rural Barnsdall, Oklahoma. The town of Bigheart was named after Osage Chief James Bigheart, but was renamed Barnsdall.

Such a beautiful monument for a girl who died at the age of 16. A lifesize statue of a young woman is on the right side of the large monument. She is looking to her right, chin down. She has long braided hair, and wears a long flowing gown. Her hands are clasped in front of her, and she holds a long bouquet of flowers which lean towards her left arm. A planter is on the left side of the headstone. Unfortunately, the photo of Ida is missing from the headstone.
