I am trying to find the grave of my great grandfather's first wife who died in the 1860s at a very young age.  She was Miriam Ash Garfunkel (the daughter of Rabbi Abraham Joseph Ash) and the wife of Benjamin Marcus Garfunkel.  She had a daughter Hannah in 1861.  I know that they lived in St. Louis and Kentucky for a while and I think she died during that time.  I contacted the cemetery and they could only confirm that they have a "Mary Garfinkel" who died on October 18, 1863 who was 23 years old and from Russia.  The cemetery told me that there is a Michael Garfinkel buried in the same plot DOD January 4, 1864 who was 7 months old.  The plot is in Section C-P1.  I never heard about another child (which makes me think it may not be the right grave).  I know that Rabbi Ash came from Semyavitch, Horodno Province, Polish Russia and his daughter Miriam was born there as well.  If someone could take a picture of the grave and it provides her hebrew name, then I would know if it is the right grave.  Thanks for any help.
