The Leach Family

Markers like these around my area are almost always from the 1830s to the 1860s.  When I see these I always have to go look because they are generally the oldest in the cemetery, not counting fieldstones which are hard to date because they are almost never labeled.

Located at Bethesda Cemetery in Morrow, AR.
