Tombstone Tuesday--various

A handmade stone belonging to my paternal great-grandfather, located in Curtice Cemetery, Newaygo County MI. I think after divorcing my Great Grandma he was rather a black sheep, and hence, no one wanted to buy a stone for him.
Another curious stone, from Pioneer Cemetery, also in Newaygo County, near Fremont.
As you can see, the old fragile stones from the early area pioneers in this cemetery have all been laid on their back to prevent further damage.
As you can see, even in the veterans hiding behind the trees get their marker and flag each year.

These gravestones are from Clark Cemetery, Newaygo County MI. The cemetery lies near the west of the county, near the corners of Muskegon and Oceana Counties
