I was recently reviewing some om my relative's gravestone photographs,
and found what looks like a ridiculous mistake, for a woman's gravestone. See:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&;GRid=10339452

Look at the gravestone, in the 2nd photograph. It appears to show BAR instead
of BAT for the wife Jennie's side of the gravestone. Since a street in the
cemetery is named after this woman, I can't imagine how this mistake was made, and
how it was left in. That's assuming it is a mistake! Perhaps there some unusual
custom that I'm not aware of? :) Thanks for anyone who can explain this puzzle.
