Rebecca Amanda KERR

Short Cemetery
Stone County,

Jul 1850 Stone Co MO
Mar 1870 Stone Co MO
Daughter of Preston Kerr

This grave is that of a young woman named Mandy Kerr, who died of lung trouble. She was a sister of Ben Kerr, a well-known elderly citizen who is buried nearby. The coffin-shaped rock was on the hillside near the Kerr home where Mandy played a child. And she often expressed the desire to have it for her grave when she died. When she passed away, a neighbor named John Reynolds dressed the stone and did the carving on it. The inscription and dates have been obliterated by time and the elements, but this is what it once said: In Memory of Rebecca Amanda Kerr.
Daughter of Preston Kerr.
