Unuaual gravestone symbols / letters
Posted by: William Wheeler (ID *****8647) Date: August 23, 2011 at 05:51:07

My g grandmother's gravestone lists unusual symbols--a crescent with star (similar to the Islamic symbol) with the german word ANDENKEN curved over the symbol. I understand the word means memories/remembers, etc. She was not a muslem to my knowledge having arrived in Indiana from Germany(maiden name Steinhagen) in 1872. Also is the inscription "G.L.A.S.". I have not been able to find any references to these letters. Please help.
