  1. That is so awesome you have a headstone on your 3 grandmother's headstone. Not everyone even knows where theirs is laid to rest.

  2. Yvette, I know, I didn't take this discovery for granted. I was amazed to have had the privilege to find this. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to walk around Bayview Cemetery in Morehead City. This picture was taken by a researcher who uploaded pictures to Find A Grave in 2011. I didn't realize how small the stone the was until I saw it in person in January. Looks huge here. Beautiful, nonetheless.

  3. I wish I could find my great grandmother Celia Rice Cleage Sherman's grave. Have no idea where any of my 3x's GG are located. It is a beautiful stone.
