Tree Stump Gravestones

I found out about the existence of tree stump gravestones thanks to one of my favorite websites, Atlas Obscura. Last Thursday evening I was driving by a cemetery in Cicero, Indiana and spotted a tree stump gravestone from the road, so I decided I would visit Cicero again and take some photos. It turned out there were actually five tree stump gravestones there, including one that had four little log markers along with it.

I was lazy and haven’t looked up what this symbol is
Number 4
Number 5 is very modest and short compared to the others

I also found this pump in the cemetery.

Mmmmm, death water!
