34689 Tombstone

7/9/2014 4:20 PM I will be most grateful to learn any names, dates (birth and death) and ages inscribed. Does it appear that the obscured part of the tombstone could contain any of this information? A relative might be going to this cemetery later this month and could potentially take additional photographs to reveal that information. View the post with its 2 responses
