I went through every one of the nearly 10,000 grave listings on Find-A-Grave for this cemetery trying to find the information of the grave or family plot marker, no luck finding it.

None of the stone text a readable, absolutely nothing. The stone is lichen encrusted, and weather beaten.

The monument is a square concrete base, upon which sits a granite rough stone. The front of the stone is blank, or all inscriptions worn off.
The proper left side of the stone is a single Lilly growing up with the flower head pushing to the front of the monument.
There is nothing on the proper right side nor on the back.

On top sits a child, with his/her finger of her proper left hand, to her chin, with her proper right hand holding something, which may be a flower. Over the child's proper right shoulder and to the back is mounted a Christian cross.
