Rosellen Dubois born 1916, died 1929. This is an example of a hand-carved tombstone, likely by her family members. The sides of the tombstone are edged in decorative scrolls. As of 2018 the homemade tombstone is no longer extant, and has been replaced by a more traditional flat stone with a floral design and the inscription "Loving Aunt."
