  1. Hi Melody!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    It is a very nice stone, I’m not sure about the flower, though. I just found it this evening at FindAGrave. City Cemetery in Hillsboro is a wonderful example of a well-tended, small town cemetery and has some very old stones. Several years ago I found a previously unknown infant ancestor there, totally by accident, while searching for another ancestor. It made my day!


  2. What a beautiful old tombstone, Ruth. What is the symbol at the top?
