Are the old sandstone grave markers for Joseph Scott (d. 1839) and R. M. Scott (d. 1839) in Iberia Cemetery for a young father and his child? Or maybe Joseph was R. M.’s older sibling. Or uncle.
But I look at the stones and see more. I see an adult and child leaning towards each other in affection and support.
Do you see it too? Because maybe I have been standing too long in the midday sun.
