Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday - Timberlake

Sergeant Joseph Timberlake...
a body guard for General Washington
during the American Revolutionary War!
This Kentucky Historical Marker is in front of Three Forks of Bacon Creek Baptist Church and the cemetery there. The "Hammondsville Cemetery" at this church is where he is buried. [Click on photos to get larger images.]

Above is Joseph Timberlake's military stone, below is a special monument placed next to his stone with a flagpole nearby.
Below you can see his special marker & the flagpole a very short distance from the grave of Clarasa Cruse (daughter of Prosser Cruse & Sarah Frances Ferguson). This is a good sized cemetery, with at least 682 markers, that contains over 70 of my Cruse family including Prosser & Sarah Frances, my 3rd. great grandparents!
