Fascinating Headstone

HeadstoneJust got back from a visit to family and brought this souvenir back to share with all of you.   In Mulberry Cemetery, between Amsterdam and Amoret, Missouri, this marker stands near the worn original marking the grave.  The epitaph reads:

Here Lies the Remains of Henderson B. Clark Born Dec. 4. 1847 Murdered For His Cattle Aug. 27. 1878 By Richard Isaacs Who Was Captured Sept. 5. Tried And Sentenced To Death Sept. 25. And Executed Oct 29. 1879.

Reportedly, Richard Isaac’s grave was in the same cemetery with a gravestone telling his story, though we could not find it.
