From the placement of this photo in the book, it is assumed that the larger tombstone is that of Henry and Jemima. The engraving on the smaller gravestone reads, "Cora A. Blakey, Born Sep 3 1881, Died Jan 22 1904. Cora RIDGEWAY BLAKEY was the wife of William BLAKEY, the third son of Henry and Jemima. The gravestone behind and to the left of Cora's is that of Lottie and George BLAKEY.
