I decided to check out YouTube videos on Tombstone Tuesdays and came across this one that was uploaded today – Tombstone Tuesday: Concrete Markers – YouTube Video Chester Inn Museum & State Historic Site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsFAMKHnpvQ (about 3:33 minutes long). Thought it made a good choice for this week’s Tombstone Tuesdays post. From the video link:
This video was filmed with Gordon Edwards on site in the College Hill Cemetery in Jonesborough, TN. Concrete markers are typically found in African American cemeteries. Unfortunately, they are very susceptible to deterioration over time, largely due to water damage. If you are interested in cemetery preservation and restoration, please contact the Heritage Alliance at 423-753-9580 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also make a donation to the Old Jonesborough Cemetery (College Hill and Rocky Hill Cemeteries) through the Heritage Alliance.
