From the research of Sherry Martin:
This pic taken around 1960. The names are easy to read in this pic but the dates are hard to see. This tombstone made by ? Scott, one of Nathan’s brother-in laws. The Scott has an identical tomb at Harrison Cemetary, Callaway County. If you look at Martin Van Buren Knipp stone you will see that he has sea shells on his also. Nathan and Martin were half brothers, sons of Edmund Knipp

  1. the Scott who built the tombstone was James Knox Polk Scott. He traveled to Fla. by train when a lot of Florida was swamp and wasteland, to visit his brother who lived there and collected the sea shells used in Nathaniel’s, Martin’s and his own tombstones. He also brought back some coconut and being a wood-worker, James also made picture frames out of coconut wood.

  2. Thank you Rosalie. That is very interesting!
