Interesting photos, but many are incorrect (or perhaps old and have been changed).  Ben Franklin is buried in Christ Church’s auxiliary burial yard, with a simple flat monument, not in the immediate Church yard.  The photo for Rosa Parks was the family headstone BEFORE she died (note no date on hers).  The Cemetery upgraded the plot in Detroit to a mausoleum to better accommodate visitors and to overcharge those wanting to be buried near her (I am on the board of a competitor cemetery).  President Taft is buried at Arlington- with a large monument now.  Not sure if that one is an original burial place.
