I know I say that a lot of things about cemeteries are my favorite, but I do love metal "stones", or rather the monuments made of zinc.
This is my own zinc monument. Or rather, my family monument. This side has the information for my second greatgrandfather, Jonathan Stiver. Again the personal information is on a separate bolted on plaque.
Excuse the crazy angle. I swear we were only giddy at finding his stone. On this side the plaque showed a cross with a wreath of flowers draped over it.
And on the back side above the family name a sheaf of wheat was depicted. I notice that the picture above the plaque was different on each of the three sides I have pictured as well.
It is amusing that even on these zinc "stones" the base is molded to look like granite.
Even though they are are not really stone, these monuments have staying power. I do wish there were more of them.
