A Tombstone Jigsaw Puzzle

Welke tombstone in pieces

In September 2014, the Dayton Cemetery Association worked with a professional restoration expert to repair a number of monuments which had been damaged by vandals. Our first effort was the Martin Welke stone, seen above. After the middle section was replaced on the base, attention turned to replacing the top.

And here is the reassembled stone:

We repaired seventeen stones that week and plan to continue the work in 2015.
