Old Confederate & Slave Graveyard

I was touring an old Confederate (inside a fenced area) and Slave (in the woods) cemetery that is now overrun with grass, tree, and other forest debris.

This graveyard is so old, it dates back to the late 1600's, pre-Revolutionary War days as well as pre-Civil War. Some of the headstones are just leaned up against the trees. Over time, tree roots have pushed the headstones up and dislodged them so people respectfully laid them against the trees for preservation purposes.

I snapped this picture of one of the 1685 (year) gravestones. When I came home and downloaded the pictures, I saw it. I did not see it when I took the snapshot. Do you see what I see?
