About 1923, Albert Sanders, who was the son of Sarah Miller,  erected a four sided obelisk tombstone in the Carson Valley Cemetery, Allegheny Township, for his wife Caroline and himself.  He used the other three sides of the obelisk to inscribe cenotaphs for family members who were buried in the Walters Cemetery.
