While visiting Old Dutch Cemetery in Highland, County during our Ohio "cemetery road trip" of which I previously wrote, we discovered this beautiful, modern tombstone among all the old stones in the graveyard. It is the final resting place of George Gall and his two wives, Susannah Nicholas and Catherine Roads. The stone reads "George Gall, June 28, 1766 Oct. 1851. A Soldier in the War of the American Revolution. He took part in the Siege of Yorktown, and witnessed the surrender of Cornwallis. This monument was erected August 26, 1905 by his descendants, as a tribute to his patriotic services."
How wonderful that his descendants were able to provide such a fitting tribute to their ancestor. My husband and I have several ancestors who lie in unmarked graves. One of my greatest wishes would be to provide them with even a small stone of remembrance.
