Broken Benches

January 6, 2016

Mystery solved!


We had an old unidentified photograph at work from the early 1900's.  The photograph showed 2 young men sitting on a stone bench.  I consider myself a "remnant genealogist" (a term I made up in my head, at least I think), because I love to go find the location, artifact, any remaining evidence of historical existence.  So, putting on that hat, I wandered through cemeteries.



I located the remnants of the bench.  Although broken down, it now allowed me to identify the graves nearby and possibly lead to identification of the two young men.  I am thinking there is another story to be written here.
