Union Church Cemetery, Pleasant Hill, Mississippi

The Union Church Cemetery near Pleasant Hill, Mississippi, has a nice assortment of metal markers.
Photos were taken March 23 by Ray Mannikko. Ray estimates the obelisk below was at least 8 feet tall.

The lamb below is the first I've seen in zinc. The grave also includes a metal footstone.
