GYR Carnival: Favorite Photo

August 2009 Carnival
Feb 2012 Carnival

This was an easy choice for me. I already use my favorite photo as my blog footer. However, it is not the whole headstone but only the top portion.

The grave of Georgia Mustian Davis is located in the historic Linwood Cemetery in my hometown of Columbus, GA. I love to walk this cemetery when I visit.

My blog header photo was also taken at Linwood Cemetery. Below you can see the whole headstone for Georgia. [updated Feb 2012 - see previous header photo at the end of this post]

Update 7/22
What a small world we live in, sometimes. Only recently did I add the "follow me" option to my blog. What are the chances that one of the followers would be related to the favorite photo I posted for the August carnival? Thanks, Linda for leaving your comment about the connection!

Updated Feb 2012 for current GYR Carnival:

  • The top portion of the headstone is now my header photo. Before I had a landscape photo from this cemetery.
  • Linda also shared a photo of Georgia with me. Thanks again!

  1. I've only been to Linwood once, but it was love at first sight. It's a beautiful cemetery.

  2. Isn't it grand! I love spending time there. How close are you? I'm going home in August.

  3. What a stone!! I want to go there too.

  4. I am related to Georgia C. Mustian, through John Lloyd Mustian. John is the half brother to my G.G. Grandfather Alfred J. Mustain/Mustion.

  5. Linda,
    That is exciting to meet someone connected to this family / stone. I am drawn to it each time I visit Linwood - which I'll be doing again next month when I travel home.

  6. What a beautiful tombstone. I have never seen one like it. I wonder if her descendant also blogs. I would love to know more about Georgia. Nicely done.

  7. This stone really is beautiful. I can imagine how beautiful the cemetery must be. She does make the perfect header photo for your blog! Perfect choice!
