Tombstone Tuesday: Christmas Birthday Edition

The subject of today's Tombstone Tuesday is my great-grandfather:

Grave marker for Dr. Sam H. Williamson
25 December 1879* - 14 September 1943
Buried in Duncan Cemetery, Duncan, Oklahoma

Photo of Sam Williamson, abt 1907

* Sam's birth year is in dispute. The stone says 1879, but other documents says 1878. See Sam's Find-a-Grave profile here.

  1. I wonder if he got "combination" Christmas and birthday presents too - My grandfather, b. Dec. 26, said as a child his Christmas present was always labeled, "and Happy Birthday" as well! :)
