Head stones and statues found in old Kentucky cemeteries. These markers are made of marble, cement, and bronze. Some of the head stones and statues are dated prior to 1850. Included are the grave markers for Daniel Boone, General George Rogers Clark, and Nicola Marschall who designed the Confederate Flag and solder uniforms. Most of the photos were taken in the Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Ky. This cemetery and arboretum established in 1848, encloses approximately 300 acres.
The idea for photographing burial stones came from many years of continuing cemetery research for genealogical purposes in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi and Kansas. As you can see from this video there are as many types of stones as there are ideas for what a head stone should look like for a deceased friend and relative.
