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 and died in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa in 1893.
