    • Yes, this is from the Greenville Recreation Area’s cemetery. I purposely left the edge of the tombstone in the picture. You win the “I’ve got the detective’s eye” award. I don’t think this is a grave marker, but I am not sure. There were several markers leaning up against trees. There probably is an interesting story, but I don’t know what it is. However, I have asked on their Facebook page. I will update here once I hear back. Inquiring minds!

    • You know, I was trying to figure out the same thing. To me, it looks like the Lone Ranger. So, I don’t know if it was added later or what the story is. If I find out, I will let you know.

    • I am not sure what significance there is to the carvings. I am hoping to learn. I would think it would take a fair amount of time to carve something like that. Hope you are enjoying your day!

  1. Very interesting. And it would drive me crazy if I couldn’t figure out why they are there. Who are they? Why were they carved in the first place? Members of a family? Important figures in the community? Oh I do hope you find some history on this.

    • I have asked again in another place. If and when I find out I will be sure to let you know. One of the carvings looks like a native American. There was an information sign about native Americans living on this land long ago. So, that could explain one of the carvings. The others, I couldn’t even guess. Stay tuned!

    • I put a post on the Campground’s Facebook page, and I have sent them a Chat. No reply. If nothing else, next time we are there, I will ask the campground hosts. And if that doesn’t work – fellow campers! I would imagine there is some story at least for the two upper carvings.
