  1. Interesting with the two husbands being buried between their wives.


    1. Yeah - and in both cases, the first wife died first, which makes me wonder if the husbands anticipated a threesome when they bought the plot and stone.

  2. Great photos, easy to read the inscriptions. I like to take those & then I take a wider view showing what other stones or trees or other landmarks are close by.

  3. It is so nice when folks stuck around in the same area and then died nearby. My folks must have been part gypsies because I find them all over the place.
