Sister trip part 2

It seemed to take us forever to find Hankey Church Cemetery. 
The GPS would work a lot better if I used the right city for the location.  Duh.. but we finally got there.

This Hankey Cemetery in Murrysville PA.  These markers belong
to family.. my mother's family.  Michael and Catherine Best. 

Michael's father Wilhelm Best was our immigrant ancestor.

Michael fought in the Revolutionary War

Many stones, including those of the Bests, are damaged by acid rain.

Interesting marker, no one we knew.. but it has a hand on the
front with a finger pointing Heavenward.

Another interesting marker looks like a tree trunk.  Some of
these folks names sound familiar.. I think this one was Ludwig or
Ludwick.. it just rings a bell..
