Tombstone Tuesday: Stoney Fork Cemetery, NC: Thomas & McRae

Upon examining these photographs I discovered that there was only one Thomas stone and the rest were McRae.  The first stone is for a Maggie McRae Kirk Thomas which makes and interesting connection. She was 88 years old.

These last two were positioned around a major large stone and it was difficult to photograph them at the angle they were placed which required maneuvering around the large stone.
