Elizabeth (Low) Bundy Stafford died in 1858. She married first Jeremiah Bundy in 1797, and marries second on May 11, 1812, Joseph Stafford. No markers were found for either Elizabeth Stafford or Nellie Davis. They are buried in Friendswood Cemetery.

Friendswood Cemetery contins stones that are hand lettered or fieldstones. Almost all are toppled or buried in the ground. Several stones were bug out of the dirt, and it is possible there may be more markers buried below the surface. Access to the cemetery is difficult. It is necessary to go through a pasture, under a barbed wire fence, and then climb to the top of a high hill. There under some low hanging trees is the old Friendswood Cemetery.

The name was originally "Baraboo Monthly Meeting," probably becaues the Post Office was in Baraboo, the area was in the town of Baraboo, and they did settle in the Baraboo Valley. The name was soon changed to Ironton Monthly Meeting as the Post Office was established in Ironton. Friends Meeting wasa never actually held in Baraboo or Ironton. Now Friends families all belong to the Valton church.
