I actually had seen my headstone of the week on a previous visit to California, but didn’t have a picture “good enough” to post. I found it in Hermosa Cemetery in Colton, California when I was looking for Morgan Earp’s headstone.
Among all the monuments, flat stones and memorials, this one stood out as unique in my eyes. The simplicity and shape made it appear as almost home made. The name and date were almost as those they had been scratched in cement, with a fading stenciled name under it. I was impressed and had to make it my headstone of the week.
The inscription simply reads:
Octubre 11, 1925
Agosto 22, 1932
The stencil reads:
If you are ever in the Colton area, this is an interesting Cemetery, with a variety of headstones shaded by mature trees. This headstone stands out as one of the most interesting in my opinion, and the reason it is
