Tombstone Thursday - Birkenmayer


My friend and a member of TSGS, Vannetta McDowell, asks on Face Book, no less, "where's your weekly Thursday blog/tombstones? and what about an update on last night's TSGS meeting...... Have you gotten lost? Enquiring minds want to know..." I did say she was a friend?

Vannetta, I have not posted a Tombstone Thursday for some time - this one is for you and all of the "Tombstone Thursday" fans!

The photo below is the backside of this marker with four of the Birkenmayer children. I took these photos one day this past summer, because it is one of the metal markers (some of these were made by Sears - I do not know the manufacturer of this marker).
