CEMETERY, (north bank of Hwy. 72 W.), LIMESTONE COUNTY, ALABAMA
William M. Donaldson memorial. We are facing east. Notice the Slab behind the upright memorial. The main inscription is on the upright with an epitaph on the slab. Photo date 1 Jun 2002.
The grave covering slab for William M. Donaldson just left of the old cedar stump and the upright memorial as a headstone bearing the inscription. Notice the stars inscribed on the four corners. There is one on the top of the headstone and one on the footstone that is broken. The slab has the inscription that follows below. Photo dated 14 Dec 2009.
2013 one can see the deterioration in the stone since 2007 in the readability of this inscription.
Slab covering the grave of William M. Donaldson. Inscribed as: "a mark of esteem for departed worth this marble, is erected by his wife Nancy Donaldson." The appearance in the image above of broken stone is not real. The image for the right side of the memorial was enhanced to be able to read the inscription because of a shadow on that side. This leaves the unrealistic appearance of a broken chip sitting beside the left part.
DONALDSON, William M., 21 Aug 1805 - 15 Nov 1842.
Inscribed as: "In Memory Of WILLIAM M. DONALDSON Born Augt 21 1805 Died Nov 15 1842."
