WILLIAMS (Joshua) CEMETERY, SANTA FE, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

Second stone coming this way from the gray granite
Monument center left of the photo. 
Now all you smart people might be saying there are nearly 30 stones in our view here. Why do we display only about 20 inscriptions. Answer. Many of the small stones are footstones positioned so the grave is between the head and footstone. The footstone is almost always east of the headstone, and smaller, and in most cases mini versions of the headstone, usually with only the initials on them. Practice picking them out here for better analysis of the burial places of your kin in graveyard.
