RE: Hannah E Major
I was looking for several stones on Sunday and happened to look down and thought I saw part of the last name and maybe it was Major so I started removing grass that had grown on top of the stone and then removed the wet dirt and found her.

RE: Edgar Randolph
All 3 children are on the same headstone. At the top it says Our Children. Edgar is in the middle and reads Died Dec 16 1885 1Y 4M 22D
Below that is Infant Son Died Apr 7 1885

William is on the opposite side of the stone.

Hope this helps

RE: Mary Randolph

I had forgotten that I had taken new photos from every angle, am and pm. I'm using an SLR. I've changed to B&W. It is not any better. I'll try your water next. It had been a long time since I had done photos of headstones and didn't realize that you don't use chalk anymore. I am enrolled in a basic cleaning and repairing headstone class the last of Sept. If no luck before then, I will hopefully find some suggestions there. Thanks for being patient!

The Green Hill Cemetery in Bedford is known for some of the most beautiful hand carved limestone monuments. You can go to any cemetery or downtown area and see the wonderful carvings by locals. I am just in awe of these magnificent stones, RoseHill in Bloomington, Riverside in Spencer, virtually every cemetery in the Monroe, Owen Lawrence counties for sure.

RE: Alfred Layman
This area in Indiana has the best quality limestone in the world. There are many gorgeous, hand carved, intricately designed stones. Several quarries are still producing and we have a rich history of carvers in this area. The tree stump design was the most popular in this south central Indiana Limestone area between 1890 and 1910. The stump represented death. Many have ivy untwined on the stump which represented immortality. Anther stump attached with a splitting wedge embedded usually meant they lead a pioneer life. All symbols on these stones had a significance at that time.

RE: Thomas F Randolph
You're welcome. It was a rainy day so the photo could be better. If I get back there on a dry day I will take another one. I added a photo of his wife's monument also.
Take care,
