Folk Monuments In DeKalb County, Alabama

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Not all my family is Jewish -- one line of my grandparents lived for a very long time on Sand Mountain -- before Alabama was a state -- and many of them are buried at a church cemetery in DeKalb County that includes a large number of folk monuments (all of my family in this cemetery have the usual, traditional ones, but these folk ones are the most interesting).

In the middle, a hand-drawn weeping willow:

A couple of these mention when people were "bornd":
