David Gillespie, Slate Tombstone Carver

This is a tombstone I carved for my GGG Grandfather, who was a Confederate Soldier from Marshall, NC. He has a tombstone, but no mention of his Confederate Service. This stone will lay almost flat. The Latin Phrase "Deo Vindice" was used by the Confederates to say "The LORD will Vindicate." D.G.

David also makes Flintlock rifles, minstrel banjos and hand turned ink pens. Examples of David's work as well as the hand spun yarns of his wife Renee can be seen at their web site Pumpkintown Primitives.
