Alice Maude Phillips, daughter of Benjamin H. Phillips, married F.M. Hover, CWS f BCV, p. 436. Notes: This stone was an oblisk style that had been broken. The top portion was sitting upright and had inscriptions on 3 sides. It is very difficult to read. Presumably “Little Carry” indicates that Cary Hover was the chid's name.
