all- please think about this and consider doing it.---good info.
while visiting a large cemetery in tyler texas this past week i saw
something i had not seen done before. this was mostly on double headstones
tho some were singles.
on the backside of the tombstone was engraved the names of the children.
wouldn't it be wonderful if they all were that way. these were very old up
to very new gravestones and quite a number of them were that way. must be a
tradition in that cemetery. we were in the old part, the new part being
across the road and we did not go in new part which was quite large. my
husband found one of his grandmas there in the older part.. it is a well kept
cemetery being beside a current church.
when i die my tombstone will have the name of my children engraved on the
back. 100 years from now it may help one of my grandchildren as they trace my
family line or yours.
just something helpful for genealogist to think about and it looked pretty
neat too. this may already being done in other cemeteries but i had not seen
it before so it was new to me.. ruth wolfe wilson
