Henry Hines tomb


My gravestone had Henry Hines written on it. He was born in 1806 and lived until 1851. I could find almost no information on him, but his gravestone was probably made in 1851. He died in May, at a fairly early age, so I’m assuming his death was relatively sudden and his family did not order the gravestone beforehand. I could find no information about how long it took to make a gravestone in the mid 1800s, but it takes 2-4 weeks to make one now. I figure you can triple the time it takes to carve and install a monument without power tools, so the monument should have been installed in late 1851
