Don't judge me because I like to stroll through cemeteries and marvel at the beauty and mystique of old tombstones. Have you ever actually stopped and look around to see the art and effort put into an old gravesite? In my opinion it's breathtaking. Before modern machinery tombstones were handmade and took many hours to complete. Each one carved and chiseled to the correct size, shape, and detail. Today, tombstones are made on a press, engraved, polished and ensured to last for centuries to come. Finding a hundred year old tombstone still legible is a cemetery lover's dream! I find myself brushing my fingertips across names of people I don't know wishing their souls an eternity of peace and thanking them for allowing me to appreciate their resting place. Follow me as I adventure into the unknown cemeteries along my travels and at home.|

|Anita R. Austill||RE: Floeva Withrow|
Thank You, but I do not want to maintain her memorial. I have been photographing the Rose Hill Cemetery and in doing so when I find I can update memorial or add obits to them I do.
|Anita R. Austill||Withrow|
On his memorial you had a note that if anyone could read the death date to email you.

I photographed the Cherry Hill Cemetery this past week. I to had trouble reading the death date on this memorial. I saw you bio and looked in the Muhlenberg Co Cemetery Book Vol 1 page 91 and see they read it May 21 1971 as Oct 16, 1925.

I believe that it is as follows:
Jan. 19, 1923 Muhlenberg Co. Kentucky
October 16, 1925 Muhlenberg Co. Kentucky.

It's so weird. I was just out for a drive after a rough day and had my camera with me. Such a pretty church...decided to get out and take photos. Great minds think alike!

I got the picture you requested for Ernest Donner in L.I.N.C. I also added a picture to the memorial for Ruth.
Have a good one...

Melissa, thank you so much for getting the picture of Nodine tombstones. The snow looks so pretty. You are quite an adventurer. I enjoyed looking at your website, also.
