Chief among these types of stones are my whole row of Gilbert family stones in Chase Cemetery, Lake County, Michigan.
Below is the second in line. I have mentioned before, I think my frustrations with them. To begin with, the stones for GGgrandpa Armenus and GGgranndma Adelia have no names. Just dates with the inscription Mother (shown here--you will have to trust me.) and Father. And as is the case through Ggrandpa Roy and Ggrandma Ada, and their oldest daughter Myrtle, they all have stones that a flush with the ground. This picture shows what I have to contend with. Being flush they get buried very easily.
This second stone is of the broken variety.
Very faintly it says wife of Oscar Averill. The transcript for the cemetery says Oscar and leaves out the "wife of" part. I was quite dismayed when I went looking for Oscar.
But on closer inspection.... No luck there either.
The search goes on.
