Tombstone Tuesday ~ Campbell in Windham, New Hampshire

These gravestones were photographed at the Cemetery on the Plains, in Windham, New Hampshire. 

The Campbell Family plot is marked out with
four short, granite posts marked "C"

ALICE D.
DAU. OF
P & L. P. DAVIDSON
DIED OCT 17, 1890

A brief look at familysearch.org  shows that Albert A. Campbell was the son of Abner and Mary Campbell, born in Bedford, New Hampshire in 1847 and died on 1 October 1868 in Nashua.  He married Lucinda Clement on 8 July 1866 in Nashua.  The 1870 census shows her alone with a 2 year old son named Forest.  On 13 September 1870 in Hudson, New Hampshire she remarried for the second time to Smith P. Davidson.  Apparently Alice is the daughter from her second marriage.  Notice that husband, son and daughter all died before age 25.

The other two sides of this obelisk are empty.
