Tombstone Tuesday - Aunt Lucretia

This is the oldest tombstone I have found so far in the cemtery of Antioch Baptist Church in the Skippers area of Greensville County, VA. I have not looked through the entire cemetery yet, so there is a chance there may be other older tombstones still visible.

L. C. Hill was Lucretia C. Robinson Hill, who was a daughter of my great-great grandparents Joshua and Ersie Jane Providence Robinson. Aunt Lucretia died at age 34.

Hey there Dru!

I just love old cemeteries and looking at old headstones! Are there any USCTs buried at that cemetery? They are traditional marble upright military markes with the soldier's name inscribed inside the shield.

I'm not sure because I have not looked through the entire cemetery yet. There are, however, several military markers for WWI and WWII. There are probably markers for other wars and I'll be sure to take a good look when I visit this cemetery again.

Hope to get back to the area during Memorial Day weekend.
