Tombstone Tuesday: Through the Ages

I know there are some genealogists out there that read these occasional messes I attempt to pass off as blog posts.  This is for them:

Have you ever tried to piece together a blog of photographs of your previous generations using only their gravestone photographs?

I’ll start with my grandparents, as Mother would not be happy if I started with her and Dad (because she hasn’t left yet).

GENERATION 3

The grey granite on the left is located in a very small church graveyard in Niagara Co, Ontario.  The red granite to the right can be found in Ridgeway, Niagara Co, Ontario. Grace and James were my maternal grandparents.

GENERATION 4

This flat, grey granite is located in Hamilton, Wentworth Co, Ontario.

GENERATION 5

This stone is located in Hamilton, Wentworth Co, Ontario; same cemetery as above.

GENERATION 6

GENERATION 7

The red granite stone show two generations:  John & Elizabeth on the obverse; and their son, Thomas and his wife Bethia on the reverse.  The stone is located in St, Phillip’s Cemetery, in Weston, York County, Ontario.
