Andrew Trask stone An overview of the area showing the relative location of the stone. The Norwood Presbyterian Church is in the background. We are facing east and the road on the right follows the south side of the cemetery.

It is possible in this picture to see the two stones that have been placed along the bottom of the trask stone. The "book" can be seen on the top of the trask stone. The footstone to the right of the Trask stone (and slightly in front of it) reads "Mother."
Another picture showing the relative position of the stones. This one is taken facing a generally north east direction, headed more east than north.
