Tombstone Tuesday: Samuel Stillman Glover, Jr.

On a recent vacation to Frankfort, Michigan I visited my great great grandfather's gravesite.  Samuel Stillman Glover, Jr. is buried in Gilmore Township Cemetery, Gilmore Township, Benzie, Michigan.  The cemetery is a few miles south of Frankfort on picturesque M -22.  The entrance to the cemetery is from Grace Road.  The cemetery is very well kept and there were American flags on all the veterans gravesites.  Samuel was a veteran of the civil war.  I had the location of the gravesite but couldn't find any markers when I got there, so the flags helped to narrow down his grave.  I had a picture and knew what his tombstone looked like.  In the background of the picture I could see an iron fence, so that helped with the location also.

This is the first look I had of what I later found out was Samuel's headstone.  Samuel's headstone is the one with the flag.
