Could be the Veterans Adm or some organization like Woodmen of the World,
IOOF, or ??? Also, it might have been broken by the mowers of the
Cemetery-owners/Association and replaced by their insurance...

I favor burying the old stone at ground level on top of the grave, which
means you have two markers to compare, but also preseves the historic one...
