Was “Lecte” a nickname? The headstone is actually in pretty good shape for being nearly 200 yrs old!

“Lecte” could be a nickname, or an alternate rendition of “Electa,” or, one spelling or the other could just be a mistake. Yes, the headstone is not bad for its age, especially as the cemetery is abandoned. Good photography, too, by the findagrave.com contributor.
