Tombstone Tuesday: Samuel Van Every

Below is the tombstone of my second great grandfather, Samuel Van Every. Born Feb 25, 1820 in Brant County, Ontario, Canada, he died April 18, 1888 in San Marcos, Texas. The photographs were taken by a kindly RAOGK volunteer.

The volunteer took several views of the tombstone, including a closeup of the base

Kind father of love
thou art gone to thy rest
forever to bask mid the
joys of the blest.
