Again I go back to the times in question. The majority of people at that time had no headstones, only the well off could afford them.
In Scottish Churchyards often you see a rough stone without inscription that was the resting place of the poor infant, the rough stone being wrought by the hands of the father.
My own family have no markers, three generations Lie buried in local churchyard and even I could not take you to the exact spot.
We forget so quickly....that's life........and times change!
