Tombstone Tuesday: Daniel Weston and Elizabeth Coombe Weston

To the left is a picture of my great-great grandfather's tombstone.  His name was Daniel Weston.  He was a Welsh mining immigrant who came to this country with his family in 1889.  He settled with his family in the small mining town of Black Diamond in King County, Washington.

The family bible is currently on display at the Black Diamond Museum.

To the left is a picture of Daniel's wife, Elizabeth Francis (Coombe) Weston.  Elizabeth and Daniel were the parents of 12 children, including two sets of twins.

As you can tell, Elizabeth's stone is deteriorating.

The couple is buried in Black Diamond Cemetery, which is located in Black Diamond, King County, Washington.

Everytime I see stones that are deteriorating it breaks my heart. It's so frustrating, isn't it? I wish I had enough money to repair the stones of my ancestors. Luckily, we can preserve them in photos!
