Thank you Joan.....I was passing by and noticed my cousin......is he your ancestor? It's sad to see the young girl's ages. I do hope you continue on with WikiTree.

Joan, that is a very interesting stone, and  love the details. It always amazes me when someone has a picture of a headstone that is as clear as this one is.

Welcome to WikiTree, and thank you for sharing.
