October 4, 1867
A sick man wanders onto the lawn of J. S. Donaldson and dies before being able to reveal his name
Without a name, the man’s family could not be notified to lay his body to rest. It’s likely the community or Donaldson paid to have the stranger buried and to erect a headstone in his memory, etched with what little information was known about the man.
At some point, the original headstone (which can be seen here) became damaged and was replaced.
