I believe it is as the same location and dates match!

This death of Mary Darbe gives a different date than FAG

Interesting!

I added Gurdon the poor lad died at about 12 years of age. Cause unknown.

Gravestone for Mary Darby shows her Middle initial as “E” which would match Elizabeth. So should be Mary Elizabeth (Darbe) Hawkins
