Ok this cemetery we hit on 8/26. Alas the first disappointment. I had about 5 people I wanted to find.. and I think I found 2. Well, looking back on my notes one might be a different person than I thought
Here's the list of people I wanted to find:
William Persing- check
Elizabeth Cherry Shipe- might not be the one I was looking for... but I got a picture of her headstone anyway...
Elizabeth Shipe Persing
There were also a bunch of Shipe, Martz, and McWilliams... Not sure if they are related but I took photos anyway.
|6th great uncle|
|3rd great uncle|
A bunch of the headstones at this cemetery were worn. I assume everyone on my list is one of those stones.
I have one more photo to share. Just something neat...
To me it looks like trees and a sunset ish thing. It has a pink/orange tone to it and the "trees" looks like they have good shading. really though, the "tree trunks" are cracks in the stone.
Also to come...
Old things from a trunk
Must stop typing now. Hit my elbow and it kills. No, it is not humerus so don't laugh...
