From The Jacksboro Cemetery


I wasn't sure about this at first but, upon reflection, I think it's kind of neat. The deceased male is in the middle with his two deceased wives on either on each side.  There are dates of the marriage at the bottom of the wives' tombstones. If I'm reading it correctly, the one on the left was his wife from 1932 until her death in 1952.  He remarried the next year and remained married (presumably) until his death in 1998. The second wife died two years later.

A twenty year marriage followed by a twenty-five year marriage. Not bad.

I think you are allergic to math.

If the facts presented are accurate, the second marriage lasted 45 years(98-53).

I'm looking at bringing you back to BHS for some remedial math classes. I'll get back to you.

At Hopewell cemetery up by Stoneburg, my wife has a female family member buried there with husband number 1 on one side and husband number 2 on the other. She use to joke that she didn't think her first husband would mind that arrangement, since he was dead and all.

My father-in law was buried next to his last wife and on the other side of her is her first husband. Must not be too uncommon.

A Wise County cemetery has one very large headstone for wife 1, husband, wife 2. Really pretty.
