Welcome to Week #10 of Taphophile Tragics on this blog!  My list of links is powered by Linky Tools — Please Click here to enter your link and view this Linky Tools list…   which will open in a new page (sorry ….. unless I pay for the full WordPress, this is the best the Linky can do).

I am following the same rules for this meme that Julie had set up, and have all the information on my page for Taphophile Tragics.   Please ensure that you include some details of the cemetery in which you took your photographs, and link directly to your post, rather than simply to your blog in general.   The list of links is scheduled to open Monday evening and close on Friday evening.

I enjoy hosting, and seeing everyone’s posts!  If you have any questions or comments about my hosting (or anything else), please leave a comment or send me an email (Liquidityoftime @ gmail dot com)

Oak Ridge Cem-reclining headless figure-Ephram.JPGEphram, son of Richard and Eliza Joles, dies June 27, 1888.   Died at the age of 12 Yrs, 11M, 14D.

Found on Find-a-Grave — “The remains of Ephraim Joles, a gipsy lad 12 years of age, who died June 27 at Tracy, Lyon county, Minn., were brought here yesterday and interred in Oak Ridge cemetery. IL State Register, Springfield, IL 7-3-1888”

He is buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois.   Although he is missing his head now, what is left of the figure is still quite striking.
