Two Unknown Irishmen of Chandler Cemetery

Took a visit this afternoon to the Chandler Cemetery that sits high above Calhoun. I saw an odd looking homemade tombstone with usual writing. But what was the most surprising was the following epitaph:

Two unknown Irish
Who died in a RR wreck
About 1849

At the foot were two small oval stones, each inscribed with the word “Irish”.
There is a story here
