Are you related to Alice? Do you know a DENNIS BLODGETT? I have some good news for him, if we can find him.

RE: John Johnson
Another Johnson obit:

The Naples Record 27 July 1892
Mrs. John T. Johnson, of West Hollow, died on Saturday morning at 2 o'clock, aged about 46 years. She had not been strong for many years, and being taken with fever, quick consumption
followed. She was a good woman and very highly regarded by her neighbors. Her husband and two daughters survive her. The funeral was at the
schoolhouse in West Hollow on Sunday afternoon, Rev. J. W. Sanborn officiating.

Also, I found an obit for a woman who was supposed to have been buried at Rose Ridge, but I can not find a stone with the same year of death:

The Naples Record 27 July 1892
Died, in West Hollow, on Saturday, July 23, Mrs. John Johnson, in her 46th year. She had not been well for the past three or four months, and her lest illness developed into malarial fever, which hurried her off. Mrs. Johnson was respected by all who knew her. Openly she was not a professor of religion, but her character and manners in
her home showed that she was living for the right. The family tike this opportunity to thank the many friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted them during her illness and burial, and also for the untiring zeal Dr. Bell displayed
during her illness. The floral offerings and the large congregation showed the respect in which she was held. The funeral was held Sunday in the schoolhouse here, Rev. J. W. Sanborn officiating,
and the interment was at Rose Ridge.

RE: John Johnson
This may be a relative as well?

From The Naples Record 13 July 1892
Last Friday night Mrs. Edward Johnson, who lives on the Rushville road, met with a severe and painful accident. Mr. Johnson, with his wife, had started for this village in a democrat wagon,
she occupying the back seat. In some manner the horses became frightened and jumped, throwing Mrs. Johnson out on her head and shoulders, dislocating her shoulder and injuring her internally. Dr. Wetling was called, and she
is now doing well.

It appears that our good friend Gary Fritz may manage the memorial for this Edward...

RE: John Johnson
I should have sent you a link, below the obit, of the specific page I got the obit from. The old newspapers are linked from this page - lower right, fourth row from the bottom:

I am going through them all page by page.

Never a waste of time if one can definitely determine if a grave is unmarked.

There are a lot of family plots where not all of the graves are marked.

I have even found some family plots with no marker at all
