01 Nancy Rogers Higdon Find A Grave Memorial #28464731

Above is the 'Nancy Rogers Higdon Find A Grave Memorial #28464731' including two pictures by Rhonda Patton Wathen & children. As you can easily see, when sunlight and/or sky light stikes an object with engraved letters, the light can help or hinder reading the letters. The lower image below is easily the more readable. If you take the lower image and manipulate the light, contrast, and size of the image, you can read the text in red in the bottom photo below:

01 Nancy Higdon tombstone manipulated



Nancy Higdon

wife of Philip  H__don

Born March __ 1807

Died July 11  1851

Once again, if you compare these updated  partial letters to the listing from the Nelson County Kentucky Cemeteries, Vol. 4, p. 212 with Higdons highlighted in pink, you will see a match:

The match is with HIGDON, Nancy, b. 3 May 1807, d. 11 July 1851. There is a discrepancy in the Nancy’s birth date: her tombstone clearly reads _ March 1807, but the cemetery survey lists her birthdate as 3 May 1807.
