The next two markers were apart from each other but with the same identical inscription on each, as follows:
? BLACK born Aug.19,1872–died April 23,1913 (it is probably the first stone of Ruth HANKS BLACK and then when her husband Jesse died, they had a joint headstone).
? BLACK born Aug.19,1892 –died April 11,1915 ( this would be the headstone of Crettie BLACK, daughter of Jesse & Ruth Hanks Black).
