Welcome...
    This site is an unofficial "study" I have undertaken on my own in an attempt to depict the many types of tombstones and other grave markers in cemeteries in Washington County, VA.There are also stones from nearby  Smyth & Scott Counties in VA. and in Sullivan County,TN.
My intent is to show tombstones of different types, from the use of common fieldstones to more elaborate monuments.
