This gravestone at Round Grove Cemetery is for Arlene Irene Dorn who died just shy of two years old.  The lamb lying down on the stone symbolizes purity and innocence as well as denotes that this the deceased was a Christian.

Leslie C. Bingel was a member of the Amalgamated Associaton of Street, Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employees of America, Division No. 694.  According to Google Books this union was formed in 1892 in Indianapolis. In July 1964 it became the Amalgamated Transit Union.  The graphic on the stone symbolizes this union.

roundgrove3The Dove carved into this head stone for the Infant Daughter of Otto P. and Martha Duwe symbolizes purity and innocence of a child who died very young.  This infant was probably stillborn as no name is given on her stone.

roundgrove4Cruz Gonzales’ stone shows the Praying Hands in Sunlight.  The sunlight seems Heaven sent bathing the clasped hands.


This stone has two distinct symbols – the Book which represents the Bible or the Book of Life – and the Gates of Heaven.  This woman’s husband’s stone has the same symbols.
