A visit today to some of the family granite. This time, it is the stones that drive me crazy.
Anyway, the Gilbert stone shown above faces North and arranged behind them are the stones for the Old Gent and his wife, son and his wife, and a grandddaughter. Almost all other large stones in the cemetery face East or West.
Now, you would think that a stone that big would be easy to find, but for some reason, even though this is a fairly small cemetery, on many of my trips here, I search and search, and sometimes still do not find it. Or the individual stones behind it.
These stones give a hint of while the individual stones are hard to find
Those picture were taken just 14 months after the pictures shown below. I had no trowel that day in 2003, and the stones were simply cleared as best as I could with no tools.
And I want to add, my family have all been strictly warned, I want a stone that stands above the surface when I go, Not one of these flush to the ground vanishing stones.
No vanishing stone for me!
