Tombstone Tuesday: the Mystery of the Clark Sisters

Ruby B Henson              Mary L Graves                 Ethel D Goddard
       Oct 18, 1901                   Apr 25, 1887                    Aug 9, 1899         

Meet the Clark sisters.  Ruby, Mary Lou & Ethel (and Niviae) were the daughters of Louis Sampson Clark and Francis (Fanny) S. Doran.  The dates listed on the above gravestone are their birthdates, not the dates they died.  There appears to be room for deathdates below their births.  Have you ever heard of such a thing?  For a husband or wife, yes, but sisters?  And Mary remarried after Ben Graves died, so she would have been a McDaniel at the time of her death.  Are they even buried here? (Hopedale Cemetery in Ozark, Christian Co., Missouri.)  If anyone has any information on these three ladies, I'd sure appreciate it!
