Tombstone Tuesday - Manlove & Mary Wilson of Middletown Delaware

I found this tombstone while walking through the Bethesda United Methodist Church Cemetery that is downtown on Main. This isn't a very large cemetery but they have some very interesting stones and families. I plan on sharing a few from this cemetery over the next few weeks, I know I still have some at Old St. Anne's Church Cemetery that I plan on sharing.
