Tombstone reads Phoebe J. Crawford Bailey wife of Oliver b. 7-14-1824 d. 1893. Reader incorrectly transcribed Oliver's name as Abner. Possibly a daughter of Moses Crawford who was in Sullivan in 1840 with daughters this age. Birth in New Jersey adds to the evidence. Died out west according to JBR records.
