Wow! What a wonderful surprise to find this beautiful headstone to mark the graves of my ancestors!
I am a bit confused however because I was under the impression the family was nearly destitute because of the father's illness. I can't help but wonder who paid for this special monument. We will probably never know.

  1. You might be surprised at how little they cost. Most people had pretty elaborate stones or none at all! We lived next to the cemetery in Manchester and there are very elaborate stone's and I know these people were not wealthy.
