Historical headstones

Beautiful and extremely large cemetery but that is 'not' Jesus in cowboy boots. The figure is very obviously a female. This type tombstone has been used before in other cemeteries. This is believed to be Mr. Babcock's young wife grieving the loss of her husband.

    Jesus in Cowboy Boots
    I read about Jesus in Cowboy Boots online. We just had to check it out. There are a few websites that describe this headstone in detail, which you must read. This is definitely not Jesus in Cowboy Boots. The man that lies there was not a Christian at all. Very neat to see the headstone if you know a little but about it. The cemetery is HUGE!!! There are a lot of pretty headstones. Everybody should venture and see the neat headstones.

    Jesus in Cowboy Boots
    We found the monument of Jesus in Cowboy boots after circling a couple of times. It is pretty much in the center of the cemetery near the corner of N Main and Blk K. There is a tree and a Historic sign on the corner near the monument of Mr. Babcock. Kinda neat to see, in my opinion.
