Last week's Tombstone Tuesday was about Gertrude Bliss McMillan. This week, we are discussing Gertrude's sister, Beulah Bliss Wheless. As a reminder, Beulah (as well as Gertrude) was the daughter of James S. and Julia C. Bliss.

Beulah married Joseph Pearce Wheless, a railway store keeper, about 1892. They had at least four children: Bessie, Gertrude, Pearce, and Catherine.

Beulah and Joseph's tombstone is just behind and to the left of Gertrude Bliss McMillan's stone in Bonaventure Cemetery; Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Just farther to the left of Beulah and Joseph's is a tombstone for two of their children:
