Exercise Stelle

Cemeteries are always great places to find unusual, interesting or amusing names.  In this case, it's the first time I've heard of Exercise as a lady's name. 

This little marble stone on the North Ridge marks the grave of Exercise Stelle, wife of John Simpson whose skull-and-crossbones headstone is posted here.  Mrs. Simpson passed away March 29, 1883 at the age of sixty-five.
