Fisher's list places it in Lake Carmel rather than Patterson. Betty Light Behr says all these graves and stones were moved, and nothing remains but the stone walls. Buys reports that Samuel Kent's grave is now in "the Baptist Cemetery at Towners" (actually at Patterson Baptist Cemetery). She does not list his wife there, or his daughter -- though Isaac and his second wife were already there. -mft
