Tombstone Tuesday: Freddie Harrison

I was inspired today by a post by fellow researcher and blogger, Jana Last. In Tombstone Tuesday: - Christopher Iverson, she wrote about how a photo request of hers was fulfilled by a lovely Find A Grave volunteer and as a result, she now has a photograph of the grave of her paternal great grandfather. Well, after I checked out her post, it made me think for a second, "Hmm...when was the last time I was on Find A Grave." Then I thought, "it's been a while hasn't it?" I should go take a look and see what I find.

Well, today was a good day. Although I didn't have an outstanding photo request, I did find that a volunteer had kindly photographed the grave of my maternal grand uncle Freddie Harrison.
