Welcome to this week’s Taphophile Tragics!  I’m sorry I had to take a bit of time off — but now this will appear every week, on schedule.  🙂     Please do share your links to your posts and photographs – it’s always nice to see what everyone else has found in cemeteries.

My list of links will appear in a separate tab.  I’m sorry, but even though I have upgraded my WordPress account, they do not allow third-party script.  So, any kind of linky I use will open in a new tab, and not in my post.   It’s not the lovely look that I want here, but I figure what counts is having the list available for everyone, so if it’s in a new tab, it is what it is. My list is powered by Linky Tools —

My photos this week are ones I took last month. The Wegner family has a lovely marker and angel in Concordia Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois.

I adjusted my exposure slightly to be able to read this more clearly.  Oddly enough, although Find-a-Grave lists other members of this family, William or Wilhelm is not listed.
