Ed Collins, Steve Barnhart, and Farwell Brown, on July 10, 1987, aided by Lawrence Hammerly of the Wittemberg Congregational Church north of Newton, Iowa, discovered the broken tombstones of Rev. John White, who helped found the first church in Ames in 1865, and of his daughter Mary. Later, Hammerly discovered the unbroken stone of Rev. White's wife Jane. After the tombstones had been repaired and reset, a group from Ames visited the site.
