While returning home from the campground the other day the wife and I decided to do a bit a cemetery visiting. One of the ones we stopped at is called a "Pioneer Cemetery".

I noticed the stone above I we entered, but ignored it and went to othe other end to start looking. As I was looking at the stones I noticed one that had a square recess as where a picture might have once been. As I looked closer I noticed a hole drilled above the recess where something might have been. As I looked it over the light bulb lite with what we used to call a BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious), I looked over at the other stone and noticed how they matched.

Walking over to this one, I reached out and moved the stone cover, there was the recess (by the way it moved real easy and smooth). Of course the picture was missing, it was too much to hope that it remained

I have seen many stones with places cut into them for pictures now long gone but this is the first I've run across with its' own cover. (By the way the nice looking hand belongs to the wife).

Has anybody else seen this type, this is the first of this type I have seen and am wondering how common they might be.


  1. That is a really cool and unique stone! Love it when I find those!

  2. I have never seen this style of stone. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I've only seen them as a metal cover.
