Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Create Your Own Tombstone

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 

time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1)  Create your own tombstone at  And/or create one for a relative who doesn't have one, or one for an event or significant issue.

2)  Share your creation with the genea-sphere in your own blog post, or on Facebook or Instagram.  Be sure to drop a link in a comment to this post.

Here's mine:

*  My own gravestone, with a fitting epitaph:

I am shooting for 100 years...hope I don't get too excited.

*  Charles Auble (1849-1916), who is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in San Diego and doesn't have a gravestone:

I decided against putting a comment about the cause of death being falling down stairs while drunk.

It's hard to think of what to say for your own tombstone!

Here is mine. I honored a Loyalist ancestor instead of doing my own. :)
