Week #2’s headstone of the week was found in Booneville, Owsley County, Kentucky. This is a site, not just a headstone. The Moores have an impressive site in the Shepard Cemetery. They are my children’s ancestors on their father’s side.
This huge stone is in front of the stones that are arranged behind it, protecting the original grave markers.
The two stones with the cherub between them are pictured below. I am assuming that the larger four slabs of stone are protecting the very early stones. I really don’t know, but it makes sense to me.
I love this site and wish all of my ancestors had a little site like this. Compiled with birth and death years, and even the maiden name of an ancestor!
The cemetery is well taken care of and it is obvious the town and descendants are proud of their heritage.
