J. T. NeSmith, 1860 – 1897
Iron headstones like this seem to have been available in the late-19th and early-2oth centuries but they never really caught on in South Georgia. I’ve found very few. This is one of only a few I’ve found with the name of the decedent still legible through the rust.
This is located just south of Sycamore on US Highway 41.
