Tombstone Tuesday - Anna and Torger Leland in Deerfield, Wisconsin

On our Midwest Family History Mystery Tour, we stopped at the St. Paul's Liberty Lutheran Church in Deerfield, Dane County, Wisconsin on 17 September. Linda has at least three ancestors buried here.  I posted a picture of the cemetery and Severt T. Leland's gravestone last week in Tombstone Tuesday - Severt T. Leland (1804-1889) of Deerfield WI.

The other two ancestors of Linda's in this cemetery are Torger Sjurson Leland (1850-1933) and Anna (Ellingsdatter Natvig) Leland (1853-1911):

I walked almost the entire cemetery before I found their stone.  I knew it was there because it is on Find-a-Grave, so I kept looking.  It was at the far right, near the back fence, of the cemetery that surrounds the church on three sides.  Here's a photo looking from the gravestone area back toward the church:

That's their stone in the foreground, slightly higher than the stone of Frank Leland (Torger and Anna's son) right next to them.
