Buried Piney Fork Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 1990s.

The tombstone tells the story of a woman who died when she was not quite 30 years old and had been married only a couple of years. During that short time, she had two children, both of whom died and were buried on either side of her.  This sad story was repeated in many families at that time.

Miss A.E. Edmonson married E.M. Lemen 30 January 1862 Crittenden County. She was the third of his four wives.
