Ghost hunting

One of the challenges of Land and Records is being accurate with the information you provide people, so if you're not afraid of chiggers or big dogs, you chase down leads on headstones in obscure places and come up with truth. Such was the case with this lady from Nauvoo. Her husband sold the original 135 acres of Commerce to Joseph Smith. It seemed important to make sure we had good information on her. If you look between the weeds you can see EME the beginnings of her name.
If you look carefully you can see "died" and April 11 on the born.

Why that looks like a headstone to me!
