Written In Stone

In the cemetery at the Methodist Episcopal Church, McWhorter, Harrison County, West Virginia.

Grave of Samuel Stalnaker

McWhorter, West Virginia

Photographed 25 October 2009

The carving is still there for now, though badly eroded and hidden by lichen. With a large piece of paper and a thick soft crayon you can reveal the story, or at least part of the story, that is still present on this stone. But that won’t be true for many more years; even what is written in stone is ephemeral.
