Are You My Cousin?: Tombstone Tuesday

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

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.

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

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