The final resting place of cement ?

It's rare to find typographical errors executed in wrought iron. Human nature being what it is, craftsmen tend to take extra special care when working in a medium that is costly to correct and has a great deal of permanence. So this 19th-century spelling mishap at a historic cemetery in Tubac, Arizona sure is a bit of a head-scratcher -- that is, until one realizes that the Spanish word for cemetery is "cementerio."
