The Infant Daughter headstone is a replacement for the original that went missing. The original, shown below as Emma, was recovered in June of 1990 about five miles from the cemetery and now resides at the Tinley Park Historical Society. Bottom of the original stone reads, "God's lovely bud so young and fair...."


John Fulton Jr.



The following was extracted from the history of the Madonna of Bachelors Grove

Evidence indicates that the Infant Daughter headstone should have been placed on the east side of the Fulton family monument, not on the west side where it was cemented into the ground upon its "replacement." So that would make the burial site of the Infant Daughter headstone belonging to Marcia May, daughter of Bertrand Fulton and Kathryn Vogt.
