Thank you so much for checking. The family was on their way to Martin County from Goodhue County and got swindled by a "rascal," being destitute they spent the winter in an abandoned house. After Celestia's death and burial they pushed on to Martin County. I agree with you in that it sounds as if they may have been unable to provide for a marked burial. The story of their journey was in the Fairmont Sentinel and is copied at the url listed below - it's fascinating reading.
