22 Days - Cemetery Tuesday / North Dryden Cemetery

North Dryden Cemetery is located on the outskirts of Dryden, in Lapeer County Michigan. 
FindAGrave says there are 157 burials here.  
 The main thing I noticed was the large number of unusual names!

 Brace King
Addilla Williams 
Phebe Swain 
Lovina Swain (Phebe's mother)

 I wonder at the story behind this stack.

I've seen books carved in stones. They represent the Bible. And I've seen fingers pointing the way up toward Heaven.  But I haven't seen them layered together like this!
 This was the only defined family plot.
