PHOTOS 17 & 18 - TOMBSTONE OF PETER HULINGS - St. Gabriel's Cemetery, Douglassville, Berks County, PA

Today's tombstone is that of Peter Hulings. As you can see, the inscription on Mr. Hulings' stone wore away decades ago. However, a small memorial plaque was placed in front of the stone to tell us what was once readable on the stone. I think this is a nice way of allowing those of us in the 21st Century to see what was once on a tombstone from the 18th Century.
