I recently challenged myself to post 500 pictures on Find-a-grave by Memorial Day. You can read my blog about this and see what I’m doing. While transcribing them I came across this one and had never seen an expression like this on a headstone. Most headstones have something else in this spot, Sister, Brother, Mother, Father, At Rest, or something of that nature. This just jumped out at me and made me smile. I immediately thought of a chicken being plucked and then I realized it was probably referring to a flower.
Quite a few of my photos are just like this one ~ weathered and hard to read, if not totally impossible. I can only read the name and above referenced expression on this one, but I do know the headstone matched the one next to her’s . They were both daughters of John and Elizabeth Druckemiller and are buried next to their parents who have a newer, much easier to read headstone..
