Funeral Home Marker, Hiding Under The Headstone

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Midge Frazel of Granite in My Blood posted a question on her blog recently about a metal marker near the stone of her 2nd great grandparents.  I responded that it was a funeral home marker.  Then, I remembered this stone/marker.  Mary is not a relative or anyone I have been researching, she is buried in one of the local cemeteries I am helping record for the Lenawee County Family Researchers.

And, a closer look:

In my experience these metal markers are removed when a permanent stone marker is installed.  Not this time!  So glad that it was left behind, lookie:  FULL dates!
