The stone marking the graves of the Covell family is one such stone. When I did a quick bit of research, however, the results were unexpected. More on that after the photo and inscription.

ANNIE B. COVELL
1866 — 1927
Within minutes I found what appears to be Annie’s death certificate. (Thank you, FamilySearch.org.) It reveals that Annie B. Covell (b. 1866, d. 1927), who probably never married, died in the Columbus State Hospital after residing there for 17 years. Other names for the hospital include Ohio Lunatic Asylum and Central Ohio Psychiatric Hospital.
(Do the math: She likely became a patient at the hospital soon after her mother’s death.)

The death record informant is listed as “Hospital Records,” and the records were sadly lacking: Marital status, unknown; Date of birth, unknown; Parents, unknown.
Somehow she found her way back to her parents in Oak Grove Cemetery.
