Cemetery stone photographed and transcribed at Bayview Cemetery, 127 Front Road, Port Rowan, 7 Apr 2002 by John Cardiff. 
[Compiler's Comment: Most of the stone was difficult to transcribe. Stone re-transcribed 21 May 2007 by John Cardiff. Photo enhanced for readability in PhotoShop Elements.]

* Compiler's Comment: On 8 Oct 2013 researcher Dorothy Uzan asked us to clarify Clara's death date. Extreme software modifications of a 2007 photo of this stone convinced us this still difficult to read date is 19 Dec 1898, not 15 or 16 Dec 1898 as previously stated by us and others.
