Tombstone Tuesday - John Hilton

Sunset Memorial Park
1915 Harper Road
Beckley, WV 25801

Inscription reads:
John Hilton
1869 - 1947

This photo was take June 28, 2004. John Hilton is my Great Great Grandfather. His resting place, as well as other family members,  is on the side of a steep hill in Sunset Memorial Park. This trip was taken with my Grandmother and  two of her sisters; one who had just gone through a few major surgeries the previous year. The steepness of the hill made it extremely difficult for me to visit. I can only imagine that Grandma and my Great Aunts found it challenging to maneuver.
