Headstones of Joel E. CLANTON (my Great Great Great Grandfather) and Angeline M. (SHUTT) CLANTON (my Great Great Great Grandmother). Behind these headstones you can see several other markers... most of them are Joel and Angeline's decendents.. lots of Clantons!
Here is a close-up of Joel's marker.
"A PRECIOUS ONE FROM US HAS GONE
A VOICE WE LOVED IS STILLED
A PLACE IS VACANT IN OUR HOME
WHICH NEVER CAN BE FILLED"
Here is a close-up of Angeline's marker.
"WE HAVE LOST OUR DARLING MOTHER
SHE HAS BID US ALL ADIEU
SHE HAS GONE TO LIVE IN HEAVEN
AND HER FORM IS LOST TO VIEW"
Sarah (Hudson) Clanton was the Aunt of Joel E. Clanton (husband of Angeline). Joel, it seems, was named after his uncle Joel M. Clanton, husband of Sarah.
