SNGF - Your Longest Gravestone Line

Here’s Randy’s challenge:

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Determine what is your longest unbroken line of ancestral gravestones - how many generations can you go back in time? Do you have photographs of them?


No problem there!


Although I can list my ancestors in a line much farther back, here are the longest unbroken lines of gravestones I have.


Since both of my parents are still living, I have to begin with my grandparents. Namely, my paternal grandfather:

John Monroe Bean

15 Dec 1866 – 10 Apr 1954

my Dad at his grandfather's grave

William McHarvey Bean

26 Aug 1832 – 14 May 1890


Rachel Wiseman Bean

23 Apr 1790 – 7 Nov 1856


Joseph Wiseman

29 Mar 1759 – 27 Dec 1836


Isaac Wiseman

18 Aug 1738 – 3 May 1818

Thanks Randy for another great challenge!
