    Headstone Photograph 
    • Nina I. and James M. Crawford's grave is located at the Burge Cemetery in New London, Henry County, Iowa. The epitaph on the stone is: "Crawford. Isley. Nina I. 1874 - 1954. James M. 1870-1945." The word Isley seems to have been added later; perhaps Nina remarried after James died. It's unclear the significance of that name.
