Sandusky Josiah 208 Sep 11, 1837 Feb 13, 1901 NOT in cemetery - located in drainage area with another similar stone just below this one.  Not sure what the story is for these stones - look nicer/newer stones, a short distance from the cemetery back towards the house.  "Papa" on top of stone.  According to Find A Grave, Josiah is buried in the nearby Woodlawn Cemetery (Sandusky lot), all with "matching" stones - so it could be these were older stones that were replaced, and "disposed" of here to help with drainage.
?? ?? 217 Just under Josiah stone - similar look/size, but face down & buried by other rocks/stones

Subject: A strange find in the basement.....

My friends moved into an old home in Danville IL last June. I was in the basement yesterday afternoon and hidden in an old coal shoot, I found something most odd. A little girls headstone that is marked as Lucinda Wooldridge Died Dec 21st 1865 aged 5yrs, 11months and 23days. After making a few calls and doing some reserch on the net, I discovered that this headstone belongs in Sandusky cemetery. Lucinda's sister and brother Elizabeth & George are both burried there according to Vermilion co records. It seems that all of J & S.A. Wooldrige's children died with in a few months of each other. My guess is it was from typhoid or scarlet fever. I have NO idea why the previous renters would have stolden her headstone and put it in the basement, but they did. Now, we would very much like to right this wrong and return the stone to its proper place. Does anyone know if George or Elizabeth's headstones are still there? From the looks of the condition of the cemetery it may be most difficult to find the exact spot where her stone should be. We do however, wish to return this stone to its rightful place.
