I remember reading and photographing one for a fellow rootschatter, it had the name and dates but nothing else, nearby was his wife, full of praise for a loving and patient wife and mother etc.

I think the kids were trying to tell us something  :) :) :)

No stone will be left unturned as I dig for the truth about my ancestors.

Our local cathedral coffee shop has a nice patio area, all the stones have inscriptions on them.
