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.
