Tombstone Tuesday: The Knights


Tombstone Tuesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers which asks bloggers to create a post including an image of a gravestone of one or more ancestors; it may also include a brief description of the image or the ancestor.


My great grand aunt Leanna Jollett Knight and my great grand uncle James Mitchell Knight are buried in the Evergreen Church Cemetery in Greene County, Virginia.  The prettiest stone church is just across the street from the cemetery, which is enclosed by a low wall made from the same stones.  The surrounding scenery is breathtaking no matter the season.
