Rebecca's son Benjamine moved to Indiana shortly after it became a state. When his father William died, Benjamine returned to Kentucky to retrieve his mother and take her to live with him and his family in Indiana.

I wanted to share this family photo of Rebecca Robinson with the community. Location: Washington County, Indiana. Date: 30 May 1848.

I love the older headstones. A lot of times they gave you more information that you could find on the actual Find-A-Grave site. This headstone is so beautiful with so much artwork on it.  The people that designed headstones then were very talented.

Benjamine was a faithful son to his mother. Retrieving her to live with him was a loving and thoughtful thing to do.

Thank you for sharing this, and your story with your WikiTree family.

A beautiful piece of cemetery art. Looks like it’s held up well in the elements. Thanks for sharing, Lee.
