Tombstone Tuesday

Here is my picture for Today's Tombstone Tuesday.  Elmer Lammay was my grandmother's cousin.  He was the first of my Lammay ancestors to be buried at Mount Royal Cemetery in the North Hills of Pittsburgh.

His story is quite sad.  He was killed at the young age of 20, just two days before Christmas, in a railroad accident in Johnstown, PA.  I believe he worked for the railroad as did many of my Lammay ancestors.  Ironically my grandmother's husband died very suddenly on this same date right before Christmas in 1943.
