John and Rachel Elizabeth Davis Buried at Old Paint Lick Cemetery

Old Paint Lick Cemetery in Garrard County is full of very old graves and many newer ones.  John and Rachel Elizabeth Davis both died in 1925 – she May 31st and he on August 9th.  Perhaps after being together for so many years he felt bereft without her!  They have a beautiful and unusual stone – it has a photo of the couple contained in an oval frame!  What a great remembrance for not only their children, but later generations!

IMG_3756Of the few photos I have seen on gravestones, this one has survived well – and for almost 100 years!  Many are not completely sealed and moisture gets behind the plastic or glass, making it foggy and the photo is not easily seen. 

Any thoughts?
