Mr. Harry N. West, a letter-carrier has reported to the L’Anguille Valley Historical Association of Logansport, that in the remodeling of his present place of residence at 1416 East Broadway, in the city’s [now heavily populated East End] he astonishingly discovered an old stone slab which obviously has served or at least was intended to serve as a grave-marker & which arouses speculation as to whether there may once have been a burial-ground or individual burial in that residential area. It seems more probable that the stone was brought to that address to serve as a door step from either some cemetery or some monument dealers shop & following the replacement of it with a more modern monument or some other such reason. The slab gives this information undecipherable on the report]
[NOTE: a large piece of tape blackens & makes the first part of the inscription Undecipherable on the report]
CONSORT OF SUSANNAH WALTERS
1863; Aged 54 yrs. 5 mos., 18 das.]
The stone contained line of Rhyme which we didn’t include as it contained no genealogical value.
This report was prepared after a visit to
the WEST home & inspection of the old slab for the Genealogy Division of
Indiana Society; and Genealogical Division of the Indiana State Library by
October 5, 1952 by Robert B. Whitsett of
L’ANGUILLE VALLEY MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION
This report was input by Pat Fiscel February 2007 for the Cass County INGenWeb Project.
