A Different Kind of Headstone

I’m going to post a little more detail about NGS, but I have to get this picture up. We had a little sidetrip/cemetery adventure (more details about that too, I promise) but during this outing I saw a headstone of a type I’ve never seen before. This headstone actually had the cause of death engraved:

The person’s name was Travis, but it goes on to say:..”Killed April 24, 1893 by Falling off Fishing Creek Bridge Enfield, NC”.  I found it curious that they would put that on a headstone. I wonder if it was sort of a warning to be careful when you’re crossing that darn Fishing Creek Bridge? :) Have you all ever seen anything like that?
