Tombstone Trail coming in october!!!

This is one of the tombstones here at Mirror Lake B&B. In the Rice-Brothwell family Cemetery dating 1832-1895 although the last obituary reads 1901.

The third wife of John F Brothwell dies Marilda (White) in Kendallville in 1901 and was buried at the family farm 5 mile west of Rome City on Northport rd.
This is the man who built and established our farm and home here at Mirror Lake.

All restored and looking good.

As we restored the cememtery we found a few stones under ground. Thanks for your help Jed.Joel helps put stones back in their place. Our courthouse burnt in 1890 so all records were lost. Stones laying on the ground or found underground were put back in place.

This is a first for Noble county as well as the state of Indiana. The month of October they're going to be guided and self guided cemetery tours. Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from 4:00pm -8:00pm ( 1 hr. per cemetery). 3 in Noble county plus Gene Stratton-Porter and 3 cemetery's in DeKalb county.There will be maps available with all the cemetery's labeled.

My husband's name is Jed he and his brother Jim are the owners and operators of Hog Back Hill Holstein. They are dairy and crop farmers we live on a 150 acre farm in northeastern Indiana and we are surrounded by Amish farmers.I enjoy working in my garden or one of my flower beds. Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
