Gravestone for Dorothy (Marcia?) Morgan Duell in Eternal Hills Cemetery, Klamath Falls, Klamath County, Oregon,
USA. Our records show her name was Dorothy Merab Morgan Duell, named after her mother Violet Merab Richardson Morgan and her
grandmother Merab A. Stone Richardson. Since the name Merab was passed down to Dorothy through two previous generations we
believe the name on this grave marker is an error. In addition, the 1910 census for Inkom, Idaho lists Merab Dorothy (Dot)
Morgan age 4 and her brother Weldon Morgan, age 2, living in the Thomas and Merab Richardson household (their grandparents).
So the census record indicates that the birth date on this gravestone is also an error. Dorothy was born in 1906. When she
died in 1973 there was likely no one around who knew her birth date or middle name for sure so they made a guess at them.
It is rare to find both the name and birth date to be in error on a grave marker, but in this case it did happen. Middle names
are commonly forgotten or changed over the years. And when older people pass away sometimes no one knows their exact birth
