McElveen Mausoleum

This mausoleum is located at Riverside Cemetery in Asheville, Buncombe County, North Carolina. I neglected to write down all the information of the readable inscriptions, as I was in a hurry. Nonetheless, I was able to get the following with my digital camera:

Ella Pace McElveen
Wife of G. W. McElveen
Born Rogersville, Tenn May 1860
Died June 1899

Our Mother
Parolee Blevins Pace
Born Rogersville, Tenn Mar 31, 1836
Died Waco, Texas Jan 26, 1921

I photographed this mausoleum because I thought it was neat how the woman sculpted at the top appeared to be coming out of the greenery.
