Clem Conwill grave

Clem Conwil
was Bornd
Jan. 19, 1892
June 9, 1893

As you may be aware by now, I have a penchant for homemade grave markers. Pictured above is a homemade marker located in Burnt Fields Cemetery in Itawamba County. The Itawamba genforum site indicates that Clem Conwill was the son of Jasper Lafayette Conwill and Mary Ann Fowler. Most of Clem's family are buried at Salem Cemetery.

This one is especially touching, I think. Someone very carefully lettering the name and dates makes you understand the love they felt for this child.
