Traveling Gravemarker talks unusual gravestones

Michael McNerney of Carbondale had no idea what a strange journey was beginning years ago when he and friend Herb Meyer found an unusual tombstone in a Pope County cemetery. Curiosity about people, their migrations and their artifacts came naturally to the archaeologist and he began what would be a several year journey to hundreds of marked graves in the United States.

 McNerney’s book "A Shape in Time and Space: Tracking the Necked Discoid Grave Marker," describes the types of grave stones, their distribution and how often it was family and personal preference, not religious considerations, that determined the style of headstones.

 Author Michael McNerny will share his journey to marking gravestones and how it led him to the Livingston Cemetery at Marshall Public Library on Thursday, March 8th at 6:30 PM.

 For more information or to register for the program at Marshall Public Library, please call 217-826-2535 or use the online form.
