The thought that strikes me when I see headstones like these in a pioneer cemetery like Laurel Hill, is: Who were these people and who loved them enough to put a personal touch such as "papa" or "mama" or "Alice" on their headstone? And where are these people today? Buried under just such a forgotten stone? I believe these markers belong to the Havens family, but any older cemetery has markers that are no longer visited.

Laurel Hill has a healthy percentage of cared-for graves, but it's to be hoped that someone will remember to put flowers on a marker like these below, whether they are a relative or not.
