I’ve been very lucky to be the recipient of old photos – a few prior to the 1900s, many from the early 1900s – 1950s and later. My family has an affinity for snapping photos of graves and headstones – which is like a windfall for me – especially when all the pertinent information is recorded as well. I have pictures of graves from Ohio and Indiana to Oregon and Washington State.
Here are just a few of the photos I’ve been lucky to receive.
Johnson Ancestors’ graves:
Grave of William and Vilena Johnson (my g-g-grandfather’s brother and sister-in-law); Graves of Mary and Letis Johnson – my grandfather’s siblings; then the picture of the graves of my great-great-grandparents (James Wilson and Amanda Evaline Johnson’s) babies who died in infancy.
My brother, Jim’s grave, in Welcome Cemetery close to Culman, Alabama.
There are many more in my files and quite a few that I haven’t scanned yet. I’ve also had other distant cousins and relatives email me or actually send me pictures of ancestors’ graves.
Do you go “grave hunting”?
