Tombstone Tuesday - One Grave; Eleven Burials (Updated)

I already posted this grave before for Tombstone Tuesday but since then, I've gone back to the cemetery and taken new photos which I like far better. 

Martin and Augusta Anderson were my 3rd great grandparents. Charles, Amando, and Ottelina Anderson were three of their children. Selma Gustafson was Charle's wife and Ethel and Sigrid were their daughters. Carl Peterson was Sigrid's husband and Arnold was their son. Nils Pearson was Ottelina's husband.

Mystery Monday - No Birth Year for Olive

One thing I find to be rather odd is that my great-great grandmother, Olive Feener Monroe, has no birth year listed next to her name on the family headstone. Both her husband, Harvey, and their daughter, Maude, do. But not her. I don't know why and just find it to be rather weird.
