I have a picture of a tombstone in Orange County, VA in an unknown cemetery. She was my Great-Aunt. Her name was Mamie Collier. Inscription on the stone is as follows;
"Mother
Mamie Collier
1893-1971
Gone but not Forgotten"

Can anyone from Orange County tell me which cemetery this is in?

Thanks, Tony
