This is a picture of my Great (x4) Grandparents, Larkin and Saphronia Humble. I chose this one because it is the oldest picture of a grave that I have.

52 Photos Week 37: Grave

One of the reasons I got started in genealogy was this stone. I have talked about it before. It is the headstone of my 2nd great-grandparents, Herman and Sophie Ohlenkamp Junker.

When my grandmother took me out to St. Paul's Cemetery and showed me all of the headstones of her family. I was fascinated. But when she showed me this one, I was hooked. I couldn't read what it said then, and I still don't know what it says now, but I know their blood runs through me, and that excited me - I had to know more.

I am going to have to get creative on this one because the only photos that I have of any ancestors' graves were sent to me digitally and I don't have permission to post them, so here goes:

This is my great grandmother Alice Melissa Elliott Shane.  Her expression is so GRAVE and sad in this photo.  I know that they had to be quite still for photos back then, but other photos of her look happier.  At least it provided me a photo to use for the category Grave!  :)

This is one of the monuments to Ohio soldiers that fought at Vicksburg during the Civil War.  I visited the battlefield with my mom and brother a few years ago to honor the memory of several Ohio ancestors who were veterans.

All of my Sears grandfathers and grand uncles since 1639 are buried in the Ancient Sears Cemetery, West Brewster, Cape Cod, Mass.  I have made profiles for every stone in this cemetery.  https://tinyurl.com/ya2vhhvl
