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.
