A Homeless Tombstone

A woman walking along a ditch-bank off Dietz Farm Road in the village of Los Ranches, New Mexico, found what appears to be a tombstone of a little girl who died more than a century ago. The stone is being stored temporarily in the sheriff department's evidence room and may be destroyed if its home cannot be determined. It is a smooth, brown stone about 2 feet long, and the lettering is worn from weathering.
