Great-great-great grandfather’s grave

I have been here once before, but what a great surprise about the condition of this cemetery! The property on which this sits (on the top of a hill outside Scottsville, KY) was taken over by a conservancy group and, according to my brother, an ROTC group came in and cleared the overgrown brush from inside the fence, leaving one nice shade tree. For a sense of how this looked five years ago, see my post of his wife's headstone,
Now it's just a beautiful place on the top of a hill.

1 year ago (“Another vintage tool”):
2 years ago (“St. Joseph's Church, Fremont, OH”):
3 years ago (“Well *this* worked out well!”):
4 years ago (“Eastern Tailed-Blue”):
5 years ago (“Harnessed moth”):
6 years ago (“Mineral, animal or vegetable?”):

Oh, yes,much better kept now. It reminds me of a story I've heard about the cemetery in France where many men from D-Day are now buried. French school classes adopt a grave, learn about the history, try to learn more about the individual buried there, and tend to the grave throughout the year. So many life lessons in that tradition.

Very neat story, Thom! Great shot. What do the hands on the tombstone signify?
