There was a glass enclosed image posted a while back and we where trying to figure out the purpose

I've been reading lately that some of the local Southern California cemeteries are starting to enclose the artwork and elaborate grave sites in glass due to increasing vandalism.

that was also taken at Rosehill in chicago, they put them up a few years after due to the weather damaging the stone. copper and glass, hope the local scrap guys don't steal them!

Came onto a little graveyard on a hike in the mountains of North Carolina, really remote. The only mark this stone bore was this......I'd love to know the story.

Yep! Though think about the Egyptian Pharaohs, and you can see that it'S nothing new.

Fascinating!
Though I doubt it's possible to get much more about that one, unless the deceased's name was Xavier?

I live in Manitoba and the same thing is happening in many areas around here as well. Those small community churches are being vandalized as well or being closed/torn down for one reason or another. Something to consider if your going to target this niche area.

I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about but I have seen something like that but did not take any pics. The grave stones I saw had either a circular or egg shaped glass case about 3 - 4" in diameter in the top third of of the stone. It was an image of a person and I felt it was a picture of the person that was buried there.

I remember where this graveyard is. I will take some pics the next time I am out that way and post them.

My ancestors settled in Kentucky right where Big Bone Creek comes into the Ohio River in the late 1700s. When folks passed they were buried in the family cemetery right on the property. I was taken to see this little cemetery by my grandpa in 1964. I went back again in Nov 2010. There's not a lot left. Only a couple of stones still upright and the ones that have fallen over are being swallowed by the earth. Really interesting but also pretty sad.

Had a quick walk around a local cemetery this morning, one of the biggest and oldest in his area
Every time I go, I still discover something new

Paupers Grave
Even the poorest in society, need somewhere to grieve

On of the many child graves, adorned with small trinkets
