Elizabeth Slavens stone. Elizabeth Slavens stone.
Is Elizabeth Slavens, one of the wives of Reuben Slavens, honored with two stones at Brick Chapel Cemetery in Putnam County, Indiana, or were there did he have two wives named Elizabeth? I have heard the latter, but haven't seen the documentation. Elizabeth has her own stone, pictured on the left, and also shares a monument with Reuben. The photo at right shows the relationship of the two stones. There's a close-up of the engraving on the shared obelisk on the page for Reuben. Reuben's widow, Keziah, is also buried the cemetery but is several rows away.
