Old Damaged Tombstones

We would like to invite you to post pictures of old tombstones, from your family files, that have been damaged or destroyed since you took the photo. Sharing them with others who may never have seen the stone of their great grandad and saving them for posterity is our goal. However, you may find that doing so will connect you with other researchers; perhaps cousins you have never met.

We would appreciate your sending them in "JPEG" or "TIFF" format, along with a brief description of the family as you know it and the cemetery in which you found the stone. Send your submissions to us at mail@bakerblockmuseum.org
Please indicate "tombstone attachment" in the subject line of your e-mail.

Our first example is: Moses Jackson McClenney
