Stoney Fork NC: Tombstones for Crepps

Crepps tombstone

Crepps Stones are as follows: 

Helen Smith July 23, 1920 to Oct 9, 1999
Wm. Albert Oct 21, 1917 to Nov. 11, 1978

Another view of the same Crepps Stone 
The inscription at the bottom is lovely:  Peace in the Valley! I like the permanent vases set in the stone on each end.

The flowers are covering the information on the stone and there is probably more indicated.

Here I briefly removed the flowers to get a better look.  I usually don't like to disturb graves. 

The name Crepps is very unusual the internet is leaning towards German for the origin of this name?
