    Names added April 2013 by Peter Etue in gratitude to my great uncles and great aunts. They were all single their entire life and each left their unique contributions in North Dakota and in Ontario. It is likely August and/or Louis bought the headstone at a point in time, but never added the names and dates of those who had died previous to the purchase.
