Looks to me like "Ole Smitty" was 411 years old.
I can hear them now. "Ole Smitty may be 411 but he doesn't look a day over 300" lol

Two very interesting shots. In that first one, I would have to say the child buried here was eleven years and four days. The first date is Sep 11, 08. The second is Sep 15, 19.

I have never seen a grave marker overgrown by a tree. Most unusual.

BC, I like the way the first one has the vines growing over it, too. Much less invasive than the tree one!

On the second one, maybe they planted the tree by her stone in memory of her. Probably never thought about how big it would be 100 years later.

That second photo is really cool! Excellent example of a unique marker!
