Tombstone Tuesday - Mann Family Plot

These need to be fixed.  They are the gravestones of my Great Great Grandparents William and Nancy Mann and their son Lafayette.  At least they fell name-side-up.  I wonder what might be on the other side.  They are all in the Kilpatrick Cemetery, also known as the Friendship Cemetery, just south of Plymouth, Nebraska.  I took this photo in 2005.  The first step is to get an estimate.

    1. There are several gravestones among my ancestors that need fixed, placed or replaced. It's on my "if I win the lottery" list.

  2. My grandmothers stone had toppled, how it did not break I do not know, but I visited the office and they fixed it for free. They said it was part of what they do.

    1. I'm glad you were able to get your Grandmother's stone fixed! I'm afraid these are too old and these little country cemeteries are even hard to find who takes care of them. I'll be showing more stones like this in future posts. I won't be expecting to get any of them fixed for free, but I'll certainly check into it! Thanks for reading!
