    Stevens Tombstones

    Here are some family tombstones.

    My third great grandfather:

    My second great grandparents in the y-dna line (both names on this single cross):

    Stevens_tombstone of James Holmes Stevens and Olive Augusta Washburn Stevens Magnolia, MS.jpg

    I have more, but I'll save them for subsequent posts.

    Nice cool October evening here. Seems appropriate for posting tombstones somehow.

    Here are some tombstones of relatives from an abandoned graveyard in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. I know these are relatives from y-dna matches.

    Benjamin Stevens, Sr.

    I always like seeing those.

    I loved it when I first stumbled upon one of my ancestor's tombstones.

    Here's my 3rd great grandfather's

    Here is the tombstone of another known relative via a y-dna match, Samuel Stephens, 1799-1855, from the New Market United Methodist Church cemetery in New Market, Maryland. Next to him is his wife Nancy.

    A very nice plot.
    Are those sea shells I see laid on thier tomb?
    It reminds me of the the old Jewish tradition of placing a stone on a grave after you've visited.

    I always like see these too. Thanks for showing them.

    I have photographed my ancestors headstones too. The ones made of Slate seem to have survived the ravages of time and pollution best.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is my first Father's Day without my dad here on earth. Yet I celebrate the great dad he was and is, with the knowledge that I'll see him again someday.

    Anyway, his permanent tombstone is now in place in the veterans' cemetery where he is buried. My dad is buried in a new section of the cemetery, so the landscaping, laying of sod, etc., haven't been finished yet. It should all be nice and green soon.
