Old Cravens Cemetery

My brother Michael, my uncle Vernell and grandfather Percy Cravens went out on a cleaning expedition in the 1970's to the old Cravens cemetery near Burnt Prairie, Illinois. Percy was adamant that Young Brooken Cravens Jr. was buried there in between Arthur W. Cravens (his son) and Adeline Cravens Masterson, his daughter (unmarked). Y.B.' s grave is marked with a cement block that was still there on my visit Oct. 2010.

There is a nice monument in the Burnt Prairie cemetery for Young Brooken Cravens and Josephine Hamilton. I am wondering why that is and if anyone has any information concerning the two tombstones?
