Tombstones ?????

Anton, Katharina Sperl 198

Anton, Katharina Sperl 199

I have been wondering why there were two markers with P. O’Rourke.   The second one actually has my great grandparents names on them.   Was the P. O’Rourke  a stone from long ago, then why the second?    Patrick was the last to die so his children had to buy both.

Is it because this could be the place where the missing children are buried.   I know of Loretta, Dennis and there were two others according to the census records…I do not know their names…..could one be another son Patrick?    The bottom stone looks much older than the one with both names on it.

This is another enigma in my search.
