Classmates walked together towards the wildflower garden at the base of a hill
I decided to look for wonders
around the bend
in a lovely, secluded spot
I found a lone headstone.
I focused on the heading and could not find proper information
(if you click on the photo - you'll be able to read the stone)
asking for help
(Rangers are excellent people)
The entire family plot was moved from the nature reserve
Mary Isabelle was not found for several decades.
I wonder if she loved this land?
It's a beautiful place
in the Shaw Nature Reserve
Up the walkway from the wildflower garden
protected by trees
and kind park rangers
Mary Isabelle Davis
She was born in Osage County, Missouri.
She married a farmer
left us when she was 31
on September 3rd, 1884.
love & love,
