Tombstone Tuesday: Another Placeway Tombstone

For this Tombstone Tuesday, I have posted two photographs of another Placeway tombstone in the Placeway/Whitcomb Cemetery. The top photograph is a closer view of the writing on the marker. Unfortunately, I cannot make out the first name on the stone. All I know is that this a tombstone for a son of a Joseph and Addie Placeway, and I do not have any further information on the family. I'll have to look and see if a cemetery transcription was done on this cemetery to see if this person's name is listed.

Tombstone Tuesday: A Sunken and Broken Tombstone

I'm posting a little bit later for this Tombstone Tuesday because I was busy earlier with school related business. The photographs above are of a tombstone in Placeway/Whitcomb Cemetery where it appears as though the grave maker has broken into two. The top appears to be in front the base, and it looks like it is sinking into the ground. I cannot read whose name is on the stone because it is sunken. I think I would have had to remove the grass from the stone, and as I did not want to risk destroying the stone, I chose not to try and uncover the name. I'll have to look and see if a transcription was done of this cemetery, and then I might be able to determine who is buried there. Of course, I won't be able to do so anytime soon because I am back at school, and I won't have very much time to research the cemetery.

Tombstone Tuesday: A Placeway Tombstone ...

For this Tombstone Tuesday, I am posting two photographs of a tombstone from the Placeway/Whitcomb Cemetery. This marker happens to be the tombstone of a Mercy Placeway, who has one of the last names that makes up part of the cemetery's name. In the photograph that is zoomed in more, you can seen that there is some small print listed below the inscription, but unfortunately, I cannot make out what it says. Other than that, the tombstone is in excellent condition.

Tombstone Tuesday: Elizabeth's Stone - Revisited

For this Tombstone Tuesday, I am posting two images of a tombstone that I had previously shared on this blog. As you can tell, this grave is for a woman named Elizabeth, but unfortunately I cannot make out who her husband was. I would have to do some research to figure out what her last name was. I posted two photographs so that you might be able to remember my first post on this stone. Enjoy!
