Tombstone Tuesday - Evers plot at Cherokee

Evers plot at Cherokee Cemetery

This is a photo from a Brassfield family album. It did not have much for a caption, but it is from Oak Hill Cemetery, Cherokee, Iowa and shows the Evers family grave site. I think it dates to the 1920s. The family connection is that Ben Evers married my 2nd great grand mother, Nellie Brassfield. Ben was the step-grand father of my grandfather, Elvis J. Brassfield. These graves are the graves of his parents and other relatives.

Unfortunately the stones are not very readable, so I'll have to try to find out what they say at a later date.
