Tombstone Tuesday ~ Ashby and Hall Half Brothers

I have been researching my Ashby line (see Surname Saturday ~ Ashby) and I found a few Find A Grave memorials for some of my Kentucky ancestors.

The biggest find was at small Hall-Harlow Cemetery in Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky: a memorial for Benjamin C. Ashby (1822-1848), my 3rd great-uncle.

Imagine my surprise when my photo request was almost immediately fulfilled...

and obtaining the permission to share this photograph on my blog.
and there was another name on Benjamin Ashby's stone. Gilbert C. Hall (1835-1850) was a half-brother to Benjamin. Their mother was Permelia (Christian) (Ashby) Hall, my third great-grandmother.
