Following the death of Crawford Arbuckle on 6 April 1995, a descendant of the above Joseph Arbuckle, a new headstone was erected and this old one was placed at the foot of the new headstone.


Dongahy Grave 356

In the 1930s this headstone was erected by the children of John James & Annie Mary [Minnie] (Fulton) Donaghy. By the 1990s the headstone had fallen and was found buried under the grass & a new headstone was erected, with the original headstone placed on the top of the grave. At that time it was known their eldest child had died in 1903, so his name was also added to the headstone.
