Hannah's stone is located in the left part of the cemetery as you face east. The stone is large and has what appears to be a stylized wheat motif decoration. It lists her age in years, months and days. Unfortunately the stone is dislodged from the base and is leaning on the foundation. There is a foot stone with the initials "H V". No indication of the foundation of the Church remains but there are several walkway posts.
The tombstone is one of the most beautiful ones I have seen. Now that it has been restored to its base the full inscription can be read:
" Our Mother
Wife of Wm. Voshell
Died March 23, 1889
aged 67 year 5 mos 6 days
We miss thee from home mother,
We miss thee from thy place,
A shadow oe'r our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face,
We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
Our home is dark without thee,
We miss thee everywhere."
