The last name of the stone is spelled wrong it should be Beery. This was my great-grandmother and the stone was placed there not by the family but by a local organization at a much later date, because they didn't have the money to buy a stone at the time of her death. (bio by: Mark Hill.)

She was buried in February 1931 at Prairie Flower Cemetery, Wilburton, Morton Co., KS, Find A Grave Memorial# 22958893. Surname misspelled "Berry" on headstone.
