Explaining this tombstone
This tombstone comes from rural Macoupin County, Illinois. Next week's issue (number 15) will explain it as best I can, including the research process that lead me to it. It is not quite as straightforward as you may think.
Very interesting story--parts of which attendants at the recent Illinois State Conference heard recently.
