Tombstone Tuesday ~ Wilkinsons in Peabody, Massachusetts

These gravestones were photographed at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Peabody, Massachusetts by Jack Parker through a request I made at FindAGrave.com for Nellie Wilkinson's gravestone.  He also found the second gravestone while he was there, and they are all relatives. Mr. Parker was kind enough to grant me permission to post these photos on my blog.  Thanks, Jack!
