On one of my cemetery "jaunts", I found this elaborate headstone at Riverview Cemetery & since it was so unusual & pretty, I took a photo of it. The inscription on the front of the headstone is:

Ruth Ann Dodson
1905 -- 1948
William Henry
1909 -- 1980
Michael
1912 -- 1923
*Blanche -- Infant

*Interred Here

On the reverse side, the inscription is:
