Tombstone Tuesday

This is the headstone of Elizabeth Poundstone Hyman (my 2nd Great-Grandaunt) and her husband Lewis Hyman.  There are buried at the Center United Brethren Church Cemetery, in Deer Creek, Cass County, Indiana.  My 2nd Great-Grandfather, Richard Poundstone, was the only sibling of Elizabeth's to leave Cass County, Indiana.  Henry, George, Caroline (Zeck), Phillip, Elizabeth (Hyman) and Delilah all remained in the area.
