Tombstone Tuesday: Daisy Lammay Linn
This tombstone is in Mount Royal Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA. Daisy Lammay Linn was my grandmother's cousin. Every trip to Mount Royal I would visit Daisy's parents who are buried next to her. I never knew Daisy was here because her tombstone faces "backward". Oddly I never walked around to the back of the stones near my Lammay relatives. It appears the stone may have fallen down at some point and was set back up--just facing the opposite way. I most certainly check the back of all tombstones now!
Daisy was just 24 years old when she died and left a small child. Her husband and daughter lived with Daisy's parents--I assume they helped raise her daughter. Tomorrow will be the 94th anniversary of her death.
