Check Out the Neighbors!

When photographing tombstones of  your ancestors, it is a good idea to check out surrounding tombstones in case a relative is buried nearby.

In this photograph of the tombstone of Philip Fritts, the tombstone of  John E. Wilson can be seen in the background.  Philip Fritt's first wife was Pernecia Wilson, daughter of John E. Wilson.  They are buried in Crooked Creek Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky.

Photographing nearby tombstones may save you from having to make a return trip to the cemetery.
