Tombstone Tuesday: And I With Him Shall Shine
I was at Mithian a couple of days ago, so took some more photos of the tombstones there.
It was a dull, dreary day and as seems to be usual there, it was very overgrown everywhere, just going wild really. The Church is all closed so I suppose no-one much bothers about keeping the churchyard tidy.
I saw this tombstone from the back of it first. It was all surrounded by the overgrown bushes, trees, general greenery, but sat so alone. Just seemed sad to me.

I think it interesting that this has some sort of oblong bit added into it near the top. Can’t tell if it was an error that was corrected (badly) at the time of making the tombstone or if something happened to the tombstone over time and this was done to fix it. But it does not show through to the back of the gravestone at all.
I also find it interesting that because the tombstone is so plain, it is very clear to see the tiny writing right at the top on the left, middle and right of it. On the left it says Pearce; the middle says Lemon St. and the right says Truro.
Next week for Tombstone Tuesday I will show the tombstone of Mary Ann’s husband Samuel Truran.
