Today, I will conclude this year’s exploration of the headstones in our oldest New England burying grounds. Should you come to Boston, there are three burying grounds you must see. They are all within walking distance and found along the Freedom Trail. This burying ground overlooks the Old North Church.
This wonderful stone has the cartoon on the top arch. The boarder has wonderful carvings of hourglasses, corn cobs, grapes and cherries. Take a look.
Please pardon the mud on this stone. We had heavy rains the day before we went to Boston. But look a the wonderful carvings on this headstone.
Another wonderful cartoon with the grim reaper (see the scythe?) and points out that time flies.
Here is the full stone for you to read.
I hope you have enjoyed the headstones I’ve posted. Have a happy Halloween. Momento Mori.
