Died of the Plague in 1565. 11th Great Grandfather
You are so fortunate to have access to such a rich and interesting ancestry.
Fascinating historical info! And how artistic the (recycled) tombstone! I wonder if most tombstones from that period /locale had such advanced art upon them?
Oh my gosh the skeleton headstone! Reminds me of the first time I saw goulish ones from the 1600s on the streets of Boston...I was fascinated.
Why the snake carving on the headstone?
