Tombstone Tuesday - My Grandparents

This is the gravestone of my grandparents, James and Anna Boughner Plummer.  My Grandparents died eleven years before I was born.  They are buried at Maple Grove Cemetery in Brookville, Indiana.

I may have gone to the grave as a young child, but I don't ever remember seeing it until this past year in this picture.  My brother went to Brookville and found several family graves and sent me the pictures.

When I was young my mother went to put flowers on graves for Memorial Day, or as they called it Decoration Day, but I don't remember what graves she put flowers on or where we went.  It seemed very important to my parents to get flowers on the graves.  I just wish I had been more attentive to what they were doing back then.  I might know where the graves are that I haven't been able to find.


  1. Hopefully you'll be able to find them!

    1. Thank you, yes I know it is going to take some footwork. Plan to spend time looking this summer. During the winter I have found some new info. The one I just don't have any information on is my sister who died years before I was born.
