Inscription: "I visited the Cemetery office on March 18 and spoke with the caretaker and the secretary regarding Maria Landis. I was told that records of burials in that time period are fragmentary at best. We checked the paper records and found no mention of this Maria Landis. However, there is a burial entry for a "son of Benjamin and Maria Landis". The son is not named." Jack Gilchrist
