Listed below are three severly damaged headstones. One, Edgar Parker, a Civil War Veteran who served with honor, has his headstone broken into multiple small pieces. His wife's, Nancy, was broken in the same manner. Some pieces of their headstones were located yards from their graves.
The third grave belongs to Edward James, son of Oliver & Mary Eliza Pittman; born November 16, 1870 & died September 10, 1915.
In the near future, replacement grave markers will be made. Due to the severe damage; the scripture on each of these three headstones are beyond reading, and in turn, unable to be transcribed completely.
Feel free to leave a comment as to the possible words within the scriptures for these three grave markers. Any assistance will help in providing a more precise replacement for these headstones.
Best wishes and thanks again for reviewing my sites.

Thank you for your much appreciated assistance.
I have a Master carpenter who will be making wood grave markers to replace these three precious headstones.
Did you have any luck on the other two?
Best wishes and God Bless,
Thank you for your insight. I will visit the Internet site you suggested.
I much appreciate your help. I care for, in all aspects, sixteen local cemeteries with an estimated 2,400 graves.
Edgar's stone will be a hard one to figure out but, in time, it will be done.
Best wishes & will talk to you soon,
