Sarah Margaret Ragle Nelson (Noah's wife) September 3, 1857, Died March 13, 1919

Earl Nelson (son) of Noah and Sarah (we think) 1884-1902

Daisy Nelson (daughter of Noah and Sarah) age 5

Grace Nelson (daughter of Noah and Sarah) age 3.

Amanda actually has a stone located towards the western front part of the cemetery while the rest of the group have small metal markers located towards the back of the cemetery. We discovered Grace and Daisy as we were clearing brush away from the other markers since their markers were almost completely obscured by a big cedar tree and bushes. The more detailed information on Noah and Sarah came from the death records in the court house.
