Tombstone Tuesday: Commemorative Markers

The Indian Creek Baptist Churchyard is an old cemetery in rural Harrison County, Kentucky. A number of my ancestors are buried there, but three of them have more recent commemorative stones. I don't know if there were originals or if they were in poor condition, but I have mixed emotions about the markers there today. I wish I could see originals but really appreciate the efforts put into the new ones. Two are for Revolutionary War soldiers, the reason they were of special interest.

Henry Talbert/Talbot had service in Maryland

The third stone is for an ancestor of mine and also of another genealogist who did a lot of research on the family in the 1970s and 80s. He is named on the stone as the presenter, Emmett Moore Waits.
