Tombstone Tuesday: Graves of the Unknown

On a recent visit to Hollifield Cemetery in Rabun Co., GA, I was struck by this field of stones set to mark the graves of those long deceased. Most of the stones held no markings; the ones that were marked were unreadable. There are probably people still alive with the knowledge of who those souls are, but the longer these graves go unmarked, the more likely it is that the identities of those buried in this field will be lost forever.
