The West family monument
During the summer of 2003 I spent some time at the Ogden City Cemetery taking pictures of monuments and headstones for ancestors on both my lines and my husband's. This monument is for Chauncey Walker West, my 2nd great-grandmother's first husband.
The monument was destroyed several years ago by vandals one night. Evidently the damage was done by kids who drove their car into the monument, breaking it into pieces. An attempt was made to put the pieces back together, but the evidence of the damage is clearly visible. This view of the monument was taken from the north, looking south in the late afternoon.
