Tombstone Tuesday - Victoria Naomi Brassfield

Tombstone of Victoria Brassfield

This is the tombstone of Victoria Naomi Brassfield at McGinnis Cemetery, Madison County, Iowa. Victoria is my 1st cousin, four times removed. She is buried adjacent to her grandmother and my 4th great grandmother, Sarah (Hill) Brassfield. Victoria was the daughter of John D. Brassfield and Martha A. McClelland. According to my notes, she was born July 15, 1868 and died May 22, 1871. I also have May 2, 1871 down, but the 1959 McAllister book, Brasfield-Brassfield genealogies, and tombstone both say May 22.

It's hard to make out a transcription:
