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!
Of 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.
