Tombstone Tuesday: Old Tombstone on a Hill

This tombstone monument in Allegheny Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA is quite old.  The first burial noted in this plot is 1847.  The family name is Black.  Allegheny Cemetery burials date to 1844, so this was one of the early burials.  It sits by itself on top of a rather steep hill.  As my daughter and I climbed up to take the photograph I could not help but imagine what the view looked like in 1847.
