Mays Prairie Cemetery

I am looking for the relationship between Anna Elizabeth Fischer and the Hirth family members buried in Mays Prairie Cemetery. Anna Elizabeth's parents were Johann Conrad Hirth and Anna Maria Ascani. They emigrated from Hokenheim, Baden in 1854 and settled in Stephenson County, Illinois. Anna Elizabeth married my great-great grandfather Alexander Fischer and they lived in Illinois for 14 years before buying a farm southeast of Church in 1868. I suspect they came to Allamakee County because her father, Conrad, had relatives there. Anna Elizabeth was killed in a sleigh accident (drunken driver according to my great-grandfather Jacob) in February 1872 and left her husband and nine children, the youngest, Jacob, about a year old. There is a Fischer infant buried at Mays Prairie; I don't know who that might be.

Anna's stone was in a row in the back of the cemetery with four others (2004); it is now stacked upright with the others under a tree. I don't know who was in those other four plots. Are there cemetery records that have that information?
