Tombstone Tuesday - W.O.W. Monument of Charles Whitehead

This grave monument is similar to others erected in Mississippi by the Woodmen of the World society around the turn of the century. Standing taller than most of the markers in Coxburg Cemetery of Holmes County, Mississippi, this monument marks the grave of Charles Whitehead. Like other Woodmen of the World monuments, it is fashioned in the likeness of a cut tree and is stamped with the W.O.W. seal.
