Tombstone Tuesday

The Reverend Caswell Suggs Harward (note the spelling here is Howard) was my GGG-grandfather. Here is buried in the church cemetery of Baptist Chapel Church outside of Sanford, NC. At the time of his death, the property was actually part of the homeplace for his wife Mary A Thomas Harward's family. There is some indication he may have died of typhoid fever.


  1. Isn't it amazing how the spellings of so many names changed; even among immediate families? I always find that fascinating. Thanks for sharing!

  2. So much story... just in a "simple" tombstone marker. Neat. Thanks for sharing.
