Tombstone Tuesday - Walter and Susie Brown

A couple years ago I was doing some research for a client at Golden Hill Cemetery in Montgomery County, Clarksville, Tennessee. This is one of the many cemeteries that are in despair and in need of some love and attention. I took many photographs of some the tombstones and thought I would include some of them in my "Tombstone Tuesday" postings.
