This is indeed a monument. Great picture. Thanks

That monument is right behind the Mobile Public Library - what more could a genealogist want -- a cemetery and a library so close to one another.

That is one of the most unusual tombstones I have ever seen. You sure couldn't forget where he was buried, could you?

And easy to spot if it's your ancestor buried there!
