Zinc Markers

Zinc markers (also reffered to as white broze) are some of my favorite types of markers. They are very easy to spot because of their blue-gray color.

(Mary Fullerton in Pineville Cemetery located in Pineville, MO)

They almost always look new because they are near impervious to weathering. Sadly, these markers were only produced for a short period of time. From the late 1870s to the mid-1930s. These markers were produced by The Monumental Brozne Company of Bridgeport Connecticut and its subsidiaries.

Trip To Kansas City, MO March 2010

I am so excited! We have planned a trip to Kansas City, MO. So what is the first thing I do? Jump on the computer to find what cemeteries are close and which ones I want to visit. OF COURSE! Then my husband delievers the normal speech. "We are only going to a few cemeteries, so pick the ones you want to see the most." "But..." I begin to protest. Then he proceeds to remind me (while rolling his eyes) that he and Katie, my daughter, do not care about the cemeteries and they are only going because they love me and they know it makes me happy. So pouting like a three year old, I sulk off to continue my search for the cemeteries I want to visit.
