Tombstone Tuesday

In case you were wondering...no, I can't claim credit for the alliterative blog titles like "Maritime Monday" and "Tombstone Tuesday"!  As a way to jump-start my writing, I've subscribed to GeneaBloggers, a database of...you guessed it...other genealogy bloggers.  GB is super-wonderful at networking blogger-to-blogger, promoting writing prompts, and sharing truly helpful research information.  You'll notice their logo in my sidebar ========>

Each day, a wonderful list of writing prompts is posted.  LOTS of ideas.  Some weeks I'll do the posts - some weeks I'll let the writing spirit move me.  Either way, it's so helpful for generating ideas!

For today's tombstone, I present Isaac Trevett (and wife Elizabeth (Charles) Trevett).  Isaac is my husband's 3rd great-grandfather, who was born in Broadmayne, Dorchester, UK in 1805[1] and died in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa in 1893[2].
