TOMBSTONE OF JOHN NOLL - Maidencreek Union Church Cemetery, Blandon, Berks County, PA

Here is something I have seen in other cemeteries before, but finally had a chance to photograph last weekend. John Noll's tombstone was broken sometime in the past and let's hope not from cemetery vandals. Either way, the cemetery caretaker had enough foresight to take the broken off top half of the tombstone and place it at the foot of the grave. Over the years it has become part of the ground and a permanent part of the memorial. Thanks to that cemetery caretaker, John's descendants and all of us will know that he is buried beneath the stone for posterity.
