Tombstone Tuesday - Jonathan White (1803-1850) in White-Chace Lot in Glocester, Rhode Island

It is spring, so the snow is off the gravestones in the northeast United States (well, mostly!).  I submitted a photograph request some time ago for my 3rd great-grandparents, Jonathan White (1803-1850) and Miranda (Wade) White (1804-1850).

The photo request was fulfilled by Ken Deady on 2 April 2018, and I was notified of the fulfillment by email.  The Find A Grave memorial for Jonathan White is at  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/64214235/jonathan-white.

I contacted Ken and asked if I could use the photographs on my blog and in my online family trees, and he agreed.  Here is the best of the three photographs on the memorial for Jonathan White:

The inscription says:

Born 1806
Died Apr. 19 1850

The information on the White-Chace Lot in Glocester, Rhode Island is at  https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2384559/white-chace-lot.  The lot is located at "Location: 100 ft west of SHELDON RD at TEL pole # 77.5" and has 26 burials listed in the Rhode Island Historical Cemetery survey.  

The birth date of 1806 on the gravestone may be wrong.  His death certificate says he was age 47 when he died in April 1850, so he may have been born in 1802/3.  

I added the photograph to my digital file folder for Jonathan White + Miranda Wade, attached the photo to the Jonathan White profile in my RootsMagic family tree database, and wrote this post.  I may add it to my Ancestry Member Tree profile, the Geni.com profile, the WikiTree.com profile, and the FamilySearch Family Tree profile for Jonathan.  

Thank you to Ken Deady for making the effort to obtain this photograph of the gravestone of my third great-grandfather, and for permitting me to display the photograph.
