Tombstone Tuesday - Document Document Document
If these two pictures don't prove to you that you ALWAYS have to document EVERYTHING then I don't know what will. You can't even count on the headstone to be correct. To my knowledge this is the original stone, I saw no signs of any others in the area. His wife's stone matches his. She died in 1930. Interesting thing - her stone shows a death date of 1930, she died in 1929. While I believe this is the original stone, I do NOT believe it was erected at the time of the couple's death. Perhaps someone put them up many years later???
