Long Description:
The broken Column tombstone of William Nelken has collapsed. Hopefully someone will come and restore it to ots full upright glory.

Blasterz could see that there was a lot of good information on this tombstone, but with all the mud after a rainy afternoon, and with dusk approaching, we were only able to discern that Mr. Nelkin was born in Natchitioches LA.
