Tombstone Tuesday

This gave does not belong to a member of my family (that I'm aware of) but was located in the Pine Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery that I visited in Lincoln County, GA on Friday. It's sad to see stones slipping away like this. Based on the stone and on cemetery transcriptions, this stone reads:

In Memory
Thomas Steven Fortson
Born August 19th 1851
Died May 1st 1886

I like this. Very striking.

Did you clear it off at all?
