Folk Monuments In DeKalb County, Alabama

Not all my family is Jewish — one line of my grandparents lived for a very long time on Sand Mountain — before Alabama was a state — and many of them are buried at a church cemetery in DeKalb County that includes a large number of folk monuments (all of my family in this cemetery have the usual, traditional ones, but these folk ones are the most interesting).

In the middle, a hand-drawn weeping willow:
