Solving the Cougar Mall Headstone Mystery!

My students tonight are researching and writing blog posts to try to answer a question that it's safe to say most people on campus cannot. Why is there a headstone inscribed with the name of a U.S. president's mother in front of the Robert Scott Small Building?
