Recently we visited again. This time we got smart.
The gravestone is in the shade most of the day under a large, leafy walnut tree at the back of the cemetery. On this visit we noticed a low hanging branch near Anna’s grave. Maybe if we could reach that branch and pull it just so...
With one good jump, Katie reached it, pulled it aside, and the marker was out of the shade.
Aha! “Next to impossible to read”? Not on this day. Not with the light shining just right.
July 4, 1856
In the 54th year
of her age.
No walnut trees were injured in the photographing of the gravestones on this blog.
