Tombstone Tuesday - January 6, 2009

"At Rest"
Located in the Ramsey Historical Cemetery
Erath County, Texas

I looked for another marker near her but could find none.


  1. What a picture! Is it sunk waaay down or is it sideways? It looks pretty with the leaves sprinkled around.

  2. I think it was just placed like that as a memorial. It didn't look very old. Had no dates or anything. There was nothing on the other side, either. I can't decide what it's supposed to represent. Can you? Maybe a baby grand? Or a curvy lady?

  3. Very curious! Maybe they did it that way just to make people wonder...

  4. I agree with you, Judith. I think it was placed like that as a memorial because the writing is so close to the top of the stone. If it were a headstone the writing would be a bit lower, wouldn't it? . . . and also since it's in a "Historical Cemetery" perhaps it's replacing one that is missing or destroyed?
