Hello Rich, your headstones are indeed very interesting - especially this one. I think it is made of marble. Although it is already over 100 years old, you can still read the writing. I found it very moving. Thanks for sharing. Greetings, Anne

Greetings Anne, Thanks for visiting the Silverplume cemetery and your kind comments. I believe you are correct with the stone being marble. With no industry up there, there is no acid rain to dissolve the stone so they look in very good condition. I don't know if the pine trees generate any acid as I recall that forest floors are somewhat acid. The cemetery is old and there are many stories there. Thanks again.

Greetings Billy, Thanks for visiting James Proutt in Silverplume. Old graveyards are pretty cool.
