This is one of the Flewelling resting places.  There are 8 people resting here, including Sarah Sharpe (Nehemiah’s wife) and 2 vacant spots.  The slabs have been washed cleaned, and it is unknown whose grave they marked or where.   This resting place is in Lakeside Cemetery in Port Huron, Michigan.  I felt a bit sad visiting there as it is so stark compared to the other resting places surrounding it.
