Tombstone Tuesday: The Knights

Tombstone Tuesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks bloggers to include an image of a gravestone of one or more ancestors along with a brief description of the image or the ancestor.

Leanna Jollett Knight and James Mitchell Knight are buried near one another in the Evergreen Church Cemetery in Greene County, Virginia. A pretty little stone church and a well-maintained cemetery surrounded by a low stone wall - beautiful scenery from every direction - who wouldn't want to be buried here?

  1. It is a pretty site indeed!


  2. Evergreen seems to be a popular cemetery name, I have one in my family, too. And it is a wonderful spot.

  3. I just love old cemeteries and this one sounds very picturesque.
