Morris tombstone placement

The Arnold Cemetery transcript includes seven Morris family tombstones. Rebecca Smith Morris, her son Thomas S., the two wifes of Thomas S., and three children of Thomas S., and Prudence.

Five of these stones were found on our July 2009 visit. All but one were under a buckeye tree.

The general location of the plot is at the edge of the hill to the left (facing the cemetery entrance) about a third of the way up.
