Not a milestone

Gravestone in the middle of a lawn

On the east side of Sideling Hill, while following Route 40, I came upon the scene shown above. It looked almost like a slightly displaced milestone, sitting in the middle of an exurban lawn.

Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was not a milestone, but rather, a pair of gravestones. There were not any obvious house remains in the area, so I am curious as to what two graves would be doing in such a location. This seems like an opportunity for more research.
