Episode 334 or "Back from the Grave(stone)"

I was doing some geneology review, checking to see if any early family members settled in the CT area, and I found one Obadiah Wheeler, who died in Lebanon, CT, about 50 minutes east of Middletown. One Google later, and I find not only a small bio on ctgravestones.com (stating that he was "The finest craftsman of the early inland rural carvers of eastern Connecticut"), but there just happens to be an event next weekend in Lebanon where you can tour the cemetery where there are 80-some-odd stones that he carved.

Expect there to be 80-some-odd pictures of gravestones added to flickr next week...
