5. Gravesite of James & Lydia Duff
James was a veteran of Co. D of the 10th Kansas Infantry which had fought several battles in the Trans-Mississippi and Western theaters. This is a unique grave site due to the "cobblestone" cap over the graves and for the elaborate zinc or "white bronze" G.A.R. and W.R.C. ribbons or the graves.
