It's funny how these things pop up. I remember first "finding" this about 10 years ago when working as a land surveyor (we spent one summer surveying cemetaries for some odd reason). I then totally forgot about it until attending the funeral of a friend's mother-in-law last week.

Anyway, an interesting bit of my "local" history I thought I'd share. Sorry about the cruddy quality of the photo's...it was about -10 degrees that day with the wind-chill and I was wearing a light coat...not going to sit around and compose a masterpiece.
