Ceramic Grave Markers
At Mt. Lebanon Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Cherokee Baptist Church
Cemetery and Bethesda Methodist Church Cemetery are some headstones
that are ceramic markers made by the Deckers Keystone Pottery. From
MMB: Decker, Sr., came down from Pennsylvania in a one horse wagon,
hunting the right kind of clay to do pottery work. He bought his farm
in the 6th district, now on Hwy 107. This information was taken from
Charles M. Bennetts Washington County Tombstone Inscriptions and at
that time - 1977, the old pottery was still standing.
