Tombstone Tuesday - February 10, 2009 - Unknown Child
This tiny grave with its unreadable stone is located in the older part of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery near Tolar in Hood County, Texas. The baby or child was obviously loved and the grave meant to be protected against erosion and some animals, if not all. The enclosure was built from large native rock indigenous to the area in this part of north Texas.

Mountaineer Heritage Park, an area of historical significance in the educational community of my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. Blogging about the members, activities, past and present, of the MWHS 50 Year Club and graduates of Mineral Wells High School is the the focus of the Mountaineer Heritage Park blog.
Everyone calls me Judy. I live in the countryside outside of the Hillsborough / Durham / Chapel Hill area of North Carolina with my husband, Bob. This year we will have been married 52 years. We both enjoy a life filled with grandchildren, genealogy, family, and friends. I enjoy blogging about genealogy, cemeteries, and my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. You can find me doing research, writing, or making preserves just about any time you call.
