Tombstone Tuesday -- Niels and Rebecca H. Madsen

While I was in Bear Lake visiting with my aunt we went through a bunch of old photos that she had stashed away.  Among the photos that I wanted copies of is this one of Rebecca H. Madsen's headstone.  I sure was excited when I found this photo because there was no way I was going to be able to go to Byron, Wyoming and see it for myself. 

I got even more excited, thanks to Find a Grave and Cindy C., when I found an even better picture of gr-great grandma's headstone and gr-great grandpa's to go along with it!
Niels and Rebecca are buried in the Byron Cemetery in Byron, Big Horn, Wyoming.
