New Article in the GYR Online Journal

This week in our Graveyard Guru column Stepanie Lincecum brings us information on the Woodmen of the World tree stump headstones.

Most of us that have spent any time in a cemetery have probably seen them. Tree stumps made of stone dotting the landscape. This type of stone without any fraternal affiliation attached often represents a life cut short. Since 1890, this type of tree stone upon closer investigation might also mean the deceased was a member of the Woodmen of the World.

Hop on over to the GYR Online Journal and read the article.
