Seeking photo of headstones for Robert and Elizabeth (McQueen) ORR at Grantsville Cemetery.

Robert (1802 Scotland - 1887 Utah)
Elizabeth (1806 Ireland - 1880 Utah) as well as any connected family that most likely are there as well.

Thank you, Doug

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/
