Tombstone Tuesday--William Williams and Trumbull Cemetery or Old Cemetery, Lebanon, New London County, Connecticut

Flipside again welcomes Paul E. Sanderson and his extraordinary collection of photos taken during a walk through Trumbull Cemetery in Lebanon, New London County, Connecticut.

A month or so ago, Paul decided that he would like to visit the tombstones of all the signers of the Declaration of Independence. His journey has begun as William Williams, a signer, is buried in this cemetery. Paul has divided the tombstone into parts so the viewer can better inspect the lengthy biography carved on the stone.

Although many of these old headstones are weathered and covered with lichen, those that can be viewed, have exceptional angels of death and information carved on them.

Thanks Paul.
