Marking on headstones
Hello, I am working on gathering information for a list of the black cemeteries of Union County, Arkansas. I have come across several tombstones that have the same markings. I am trying to find out what organization that this represents. I will describe the markings for you. There is what looks to be and X in the middle. To the left hand side is the letter T. in the upper top the letter M. to the right hand side the letter A. in the bottom is the letter V. with a small 's then the number 3 in between the letter V. The dates of all these tombstones seems to be from the late 1800's and early 1900's. I would appreciate it if anyone has any information concerning this. Thank you.
