Tombstone Tuesday: The Walsh Sisters

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.

St. Paul’s Catholic Church Cemetery in Portsmouth, Virginia is the final resting place of my paternal grandmother and grandfather, Julia Mary Walsh Slade and Fred Robert Slade.
