No, the title of this post is not a typo. It reflects the people listed on this interesting tombstone in Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus. I wish my ancestors’ tombstones had so much information!

I think there should be a regulation that all headstones be this complete! It’s great that so much of the carving can still be read.

You’re right. Their descendants are lucky to have information *and* legibility!

I’m just wondering how much this cost! I do wish more stones had more information on them!
