Tombstones can reveal more than just names and dates. Often, the inclusion of carved flowers, or an attached photo on a marker provides additional information about the deceased. Cemetery researcher Abby Burnett will share examples of the Victorian-era custom known as the "Language of flowers," as well as information on photoceramics, and discuss how these two practices add to our knowledge of the people buried in Ozark cemeteries.
