The added names are Olive Countryman. Died march 19, 1917, aged 19. 
I can not find only but a corner stone which I believe is hers next to Joel and Hannah Contreman, her parents.
Info provided by the obituary in the Leader Herald newspaper.. Also George B Foss. No Dates, only a hand made cross next to his stone. I have been trying to restore it with not much luck. He was my grandmother's dad.
