President Ronnive Vance submitted these photos of Wood County tombstones. Do you have any interesting tombstones in the county to share?
Reverting back to old practices, Jack King Seale chose to be buried on his property along CR 3235 between Lake Lydia and Concord Cemetery located on FM 778. Also buried with Jack are two of his dogs, Heidi and Hecter. Their gravesites are also marked. Not long after Jack passed and the dogs were also buried, his wife sold the house and land, including the grave site, and returned to her family in the Carolinas. Another unusual twist is that Jack’s gravestone is facing north instead of the customary east facing stone.
