TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: Tombstones….buried in the wrong hole?

FUNNY EPITAPHS


When the great judgement day arrives
and Joshua Fenton Newton does not emerge from this hole,
you will know that someone made a mistake
and buried me in the wrong hole.

——–

Sacred to the memory of
my husband John Barnes
who died January 3, 1803
His comely young widow, aged 23, has
many qualifications of a good wife, and
yearns to be comforted.

Reviews

“This book was very informative and at a very modest price. One web site I may have missed in your book that has been very helpful to me is genealogybank.com. I found articles about several of my ancestors in their newspaper archives. Thank you for your great newsletter and this book.”

“The book was clear & concise, with excellent information for beginners. As an experienced genealogist, I enjoyed the chapter with lists of interview questions. I’d recommend this book to those who are just beginning to work on their genealogies. For more experienced genealogists, it provides a nice refresher.”

    I wanted “I told them I was sick”. My daughter Cheona Holland, didn’t appreciate my sense of humor. So I have a log cabin carving on my side. Love you girl lol

  2. What creeps me out more than anything on earth is to walk up to a tombstone and see where one person has gone and the other still living but on the living side there is the persons name with their birthday and a dash like they are just waiting to get in. Plus I think of the young folks that their spouse goes and they have their name and birthday added to the stone. What if they marry again? I never would put my name on a headstone period. I’ll be cremated . I do not want to walk up see my name there . That creeps me out to no end.
