Treestones — Stone Grave Monuments Carved into the Shape of a Tree Trunk

Treestones — Stone Tree Trunks Used as Grave Markers

There are many unique grave marker styles in our cemetery.   Among the more unusual markers are stone monuments carved in the shape of a tree trunk.   They often have what appears to be a scroll hanging on the tree.   These markers were popular during the last two decades of the 1800s and the first decade of the 1900s.   Limestone was preferred but other stone was also used.   Treestones were available through Sears & Roebuck.   The attached photographs are of treestones in our cemetery.
