    It was a stone shared by the husband and wife.

    It goes to show what an impression Masonry makes on men with them wanting the S&C on their tombstones. Too cool

    I definitely want a Square and Compass on my tombstone, when the day comes.

    Many cemetaries in Texas have a Masonic Section. Our Lodge mows and cleans the one in Pecan Grove in McKinney.

    There is a cemetery in North Austin/Pflugerville that has monuments set-up in the shape of an outdoor Lodge Room. Stations, altar, the works. I'll have to swing by and snap some pictures.

    That was great.. ! always love the history behind Masonry.. ! seeing the old stones show me what they though about Masonry.. !

    There is an old tombstone in the Rosenberg cementry that is neet.. ! it is a stone with no name just the square and compasses.. ! the story goes that a brother mason from the north came to town and made himself known to a few brothern of the lodge and then caught something and died.. they did not know his name or where he was from so they gave him a masonic service and purchased a tombstone for the grave with no name.. they said all a person needs to know about his was that he was a good man and a mason..?
