What a wonderful idea! I probably would never have thought of contacting the local people who made the grave stones. Although I'm unsure as to whether or not my ancestors were provided with grave markers, one would certainly hope so . . . I've found in some cases where a burial had occurred, the family was unable to afford a permanent headstone. In places that involved extreme weather (most of America at some time of the year) the hand made wooden markers didn't last long . . .

I'll keep your suggestion in mind for future use as well.

Thank you for your time and sharing the "tip".

In gratitude,

Leslie
