Tombstone Tuesday - Mary and Charles Clark

Mary Elizabeth and Charles Henry Clark are my great-grandparents.  Charles Henry Clark was born 20 Feb 1870 in Fayette County, Illinois and died 15 Apr 1943 in Decatur, Macon County, Illinois.  His wife Elizabeth, who was about nine years older, was born  23 Nov 1861 in Fayette County, Illinois and died 9 Feb 1949 in Decatur, Macon County, Illinois.  They are both buried in the Saint Bonaventure Cemetery in Saint Elmo, Fayette County, Illinois.  My father remembers that his Grandmother wore laced up men's styled boots with everything she ever wore.  She use to chase the grandchildren around the yard, the boots never slowed her down.
