Tombstone Tuesday, Oyster Bay Baptist Church Cemetery, Oyster Bay, Alabama

Oyster Bay Baptist Church, is a small church cemetery, tucked into a cove created by the church buildings.  It is located at the intersection of Plash, Mund and Ewing Lane, Oyster Bay, Alabama.

E C Gerstenberg & his wife, Margaret Louisa.
EC 1814-1900
Margaret 1813-1901

The Oyster Bay Baptist Church Cemetery can be found at Find A Grave, here.  Most of the stones are newer, the Gerstenberg stone above is in the worst shape of all the stones.  From the records at Find A Grave, it appears that Celcila Steiner, who died in 1877, may be the first burial there, although there are a number of the Mund clan that have unmarked stones.
