It is very likely that these graves may not be found. In the early 1900's several of the grave markers were moved or destroyed when a road constructed through the area. This I know from my own research. Next time I am in that area, I will stop by and get some photos if these graves can be found. Hopefully the information below will give you what you need, usualy the headstones are in poor condition and you can't make out the information.

Here is some burial information from sexton records found on Ancestry.com"

Also, I just checked the index of biographies at the Daughters of Utah Pioneers web site and both Robert and Elizabeth have histories on file. And there is a bonus, there are photos on file as well. Late time I ordered photos, they took about 8 weeks. http://www.dupinternational.org/
