Thanking Scott Andersen for sharing these "before" and "after" photographs shown below of the Joseph Hull gravestone at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio.
Scott first saw this 1875 white marble gravestone on October 12, 2013 and began his work to repair (re-piece!) it immediately.
The top photograph is an 'as found' picture of the Joseph Hull stone as it lay on the ground in a state of several broken pieces.
Scott said that fortunately the base for the stone was still intact, however, there was an added problem of a broken off stub from the gravestone itself still stuck in the base.
The next photograph documents the progress of the restoration work applied to the gravestone now seen repaired and ready to be installed back in its base.
The last two photographs were taken after the work was completed showing the cleaned and repaired gravestone securely back in its slotted base.
The last photograph shows the stark contrast between the Joseph Hull gravestone standing straight and tall next to a 'neighbor' gravestone that is leaning to its side and in dire need of cleaning.
Thanks to Scott, the Joseph Hull gravestone has resumed its stately stance to once again properly honor the person whose name is inscribed on it.
