Clothespin grave monument.

Clothespin Grave Marker

This graveyard also has some other interesting (and sad) markers, if you have time to walk around and like looking at grave markers. The clothespin headstone is one rutted/driving lane in, on the right-hand side towards the back.

Gravestone shaped like a clothespin.

Clothespin Gravestone

From the directions off an earlier posting for this cemetery, we were able to find it pretty easily. We asked one local farmer where to go and he knew exactly where it was. It's pretty big and you can't miss it once you find the cemetery.
