SOMES TOMBSTONE - Brookside Cemetery, Somesville, Mount Desert Island, MAINE

Today we have an old tombstone with a modern touch. The inscription on this stone must have worn away years ago and someone, probably the family, had a new plaque created and placed on the old stone. Maybe we will see more of these types of longer lasting memorial plaques in the future as inscriptions on older stones begin to fade away. I hope so because future generations will be able to pay their respects to their ancestors as we do today.
