Carol,
You are too kind! Long before I knew what a blog was, my hubby drove me up there, and we snapped a photo of Jesse Parker's tombstone. It is not the clearest photo...but it is at:

The location is in Weston Village Cemetery in Fairfield Township of Lenawee County, Michigan.


We had a nice visit, and also stopped at the public library in Adrian. We took back roads, and it was a very pleasant drive. Jesse was the brother of my GGG Grandfather.

I think I like the older tombstones best. I don't have many of them in my files. The hand with flower, bird and tree are GREAT! It's obvious you put alot of time and consideration into your GYR blog.
