Tombstone Tuesday: First Edition

I was so excited to see the Tombstone Tuesday writing prompt from GeneaBloggers and have decided to make it a permanentย feature here at The Hipster Historian. Why? I love cemeteries. I visit one at least once a week and try to take as many pictures as I can both for photography practice (see here) and to help upload to one of the biggest gravestone photo repositories on the web — Find A Grave.

Today’s post will be about the different types of tombstones I’ve seen in my travels and trips to the cemeteries I’ve been too. Most of these photos come from my local cemetery, Bayview with the exception of the last photo taken atย Mills and Mills Memorial Park in Tumwater, Washington.
