Thank you for looking. The name on her headstone is Marston. She married Erastus D. Marston and the inscription says "In Memory of Lousia, wife of Erastus Marstone, died Dec. 5, 1856.
Would there be anything under Marston?
Again, thank you for looking. Hopefully I can get the headstone from the Ebay seller. The listing has been taken off Ebay but I did email the seller before it was taken down. I do hope he will get in touch with me.
