Illegible UNKNOWN

New Salem Cemetery
Barry County,

This sad little piece of headstone was all I found on this grave. Other pieces may be buried or have been moved to other such broken headstones. This is probably a burial for a child noting the lamb on the top of the headstone. The lamb decoration is not solely found on infant graves, but that is the most common decoration for a child's grave especially from this time frame which would be late 1800's probably 1870-1880.
