|Robert Estes||Inscription on George Turner's headstone|
We finally had a nice run of pretty weather so I went back out to East Dickson Cemetery and made a few rubbings of George Turner's Headstone. With a little work I finally have made out the inscription on his stone. Would you like me to mail them to you? Mind you they're not perfect, but his stone is almost 100 years, so I did the best I could. The inscription is greatly faded but upon very close examination it appears to read ~ Kind father of love, though art gone to thy rest. Forever to bask mid, the joys of the blest.

Thank you for the opportunity to help. It was a nice cool day and since I pass East Dickson Cemetery several times a week, it was no problem to take the pictures. The inscription on the Turner headstone is very worn & faded. All I could make out was something about "...no greater love...", or something like that. I will go back and attempt a light stone rubbing with a crayon marker on a large sheet of paper. I have had pretty good results on "pulling out" the inscriptions on other stones. If I get good results, I'll update the photo on George Turner's memorial page with what I find. Would you like me to mail the rubbing to you? If so, send me a mailing address to my e-mail, robestesbellsouth.net and I'll drop it in the mail to you. Thanks again.
