Sometimes when I'm out graving, I find a lone stone and wonder where the rest of the family was.

At Oakland Cemetery in Little Rock, I ran across this stone.

Walter L Terry
Born
Feb 14 1813
Died
Aug 14 1876

Doing a tiny bit of research, I found that Walter was born in North Carolina, as was his wife, Rebecca Meredith. I know from researching them that they lived in Richmond County, NC in 1850 with their daughter, Sarah, who was 2.

By 1860, they were living in Ashley township of Pulaski County, and there was no Sarah with them. They were in the same location in the 1870 census. Walter's occupation was physician.

In 1880, after Walter's death, Rebecca Terry lived with her daughter Sallie (noted in the census as Charlotte), and son-in-law, Robert Little. Still in Pulaski County, but living now in the city of Little Rock.

Another graver says Rebecca is also buried at Oakland, but apparently the earth has claimed her stone.
