Located just behind these markers are the following:


Cora A. 1890-1965 James E 1883-1932

Just off to the side of the one above is: Helen A 1929-1973

Just behind all three of these is this one Francis Jeanene Crowell 5/2/1935-8/28/1935

From Delbert Penrod, Rochester, IL

Floyd Jesse Penrod, a U. S. Marine, was killed on Iwo Jimo. He was son of Jesse J. and Maud Penrod of Murphysboro, IL. He is buried in Worthen Cemetery.

Cora and James only living child Charles thought that Francis was his mother and father's child until I pointed out the dates on the child's stone to him, which happened after James death, so as of right now no one is sure if this is Cora's child or the child of another Crowell.
