He had salvaged them from the field where David and Mary were buried when the current owner had turned the cattle into the pasture. He had intended on placing them in the Wills Cemetery.The Wills Cemetery is where David and Mary's son Edwards was buried.Edwards widow had remarried to Hiram Wills and the property became known as the Wills place and Wills Cemetery.Edgar Ellis was a descendant of Edwards Kinkead.
