PHOTO 19 - TOMBSTONE OF J. JACOB PFEIFFER - Host Church Cemetery, Bernville, Berks County, PA

Today's stone is that of J. Jacob Pfeiffer who served in the Berks County Militia during the Revolutionary War. It appears as if ancestors placed a modern Veterans stone in front of Mr. Pfeiffer's original stone with a concrete base surrounding both stones and holding them in place. A very nice job indeed and a nice mix of modern and ancient tombstones together.
