Main Cox gravestone

This plot is a little unusual in that there is a portion of an original gravestone embedded in the ground. There is a newer marker surrounded by smaller markers for the individual family members, rather than the information about these people being recorded on the main stone.The east face has an open Bible with the name "COX" inscribed. The markers are for Eleanor Wilson, Mary Hood, and William Cox. The west face has only the initial "C" inscribed with the markers for Emma Kirby and Robert H. Cox.The north face is where the fragment is embedded in the ground.
