Cemetery Surprise Discoveries

Professional genealogist Elizabeth Shown Mills talks about looking for clues in an ancestor's "FAN Club" (Friends, Associates, Neighbors).  I don't see why that does not also apply to cemeteries?

My son Ralph the cemetery rabbit and I drove down to Park Hill Cemetery, in Bloomington, McLean County, Illinois to visit the grave of my first cousin 2x removed Guy Truman Walker (1884-1919).

Lo and behold when checking the nearby graves, aka. G. Truman Walker's "FAN Club," we discover --

-- the grave of his mother Clarissa Elvira Isabella (Berry) Walker 1860-1928.  We wondered where she was!
