Tombstone Tuesday - John and Maggie Manley

This is the tombstone of my paternal great grandparents, John Manley (1854-1933) and his wife Maggie Flynn (1857-1894) located in Old Lakeview Cemetery, Thorold, ON, Canada. This cemetery is located on the banks of the Welland Canal, fitting since John spent his life working on building it. I love that all of my direct ancestors and their family members are buried here, together! It is serene and peaceful, all you can hear are birds chirping and the occasional toot of a ship passing by. They would love that ;-)... and here is my first attempt at a charcoal rubbing.
