Tombstone Tuesday :: Rest in Peace

On the campus of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College near Terre Haute, Indiana
Winter of 1981
I didn't read the other side of the stones so don't know who is buried there.

  1. Becky, this has got to be the loveliest Tombstone Tuesday photo yet!

  2. Becky,
    Do you have family from St. Mary of the Woods? My family lived there from 1830 to 1900, all Irish Catholics. The surnames are: Sheern, Holland, Dermody, Curly, Reagan, Rice, Reed and Ward. They all lived in Sugar Creek Township, most with land that adjoined the Sisters of Providence.

  3. Miriam - Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the picture.

    Sheri - No family down there that I am aware of. I lived in Terre Haute for 3 years while attending Indiana State University.
