Tombstone Tuesday – Christmastime at the Cemetery

We went to the cemetery on Sunday and put a blanket on Dad’s grave.

Earl Hines 1926-1996

I noticed dad’s headstone is sinking, I have to see about fixing it in the spring, unless the frost shifts it back to it’s proper place.

My 6th great-grandfather lived in Green County, Tennessee. Henricus Steinseifer was born in Eisenfeld, Westfaln, Germany on July 27, 1739 and immigrated to Philadelphia in 1749 with his family. Heinricus, aka Henry Stonecypher, married Catherine Call in Culpepper, Virginia in 1760. Catherine died in 1778 in Davie, South Carolina. Henry died in Green County, Tennessee in 1832 at 93 years of age.

Henry and Catherine’s son, Solomon Stonecipher, was born in Surrey, North Carolina in 1772. He married Elizabeth Hawkins Nov. 18, 1796 in Green County, Tennessee. Solomon died in Green County, Tennessee on Sept. 2, 1844. Elizabeth died in Green County, Tennessee in 1824.
