Tombstone Tuesday Porter Descendant

Gerorge Lawrence Vance and Wife Susan Barbara Vance
grandson of John G Porter. Interesting Susan has a second tombstone just behind the dual tombstone. She died in 1916 and he died in 1928.


  1. This is an interesting headstone-- in placement, but also the wording. I don't often see a "Mrs." on the headstone. Makes one wonder if they were a couple that said to one another:
    "Good morning, Mrs. Vance" "And good morning to you, Mr. Vance"

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Looking at George and Susan's picture I would say you could be correct. Mr and Mrs salutations.
    Interestingly she was Susan Barbara, but I notice the children put Barbara on the dual stone. My mother in law called her Barbara and that was a stumbling block at first.
    Thanks for coming by
