One of my first blog posts was about the gravestone for Effa Hamilton Butt (b. 1805, d. 1852) in Oller Cemetery. It had fallen over, maybe due to soil erosion at its base. Judging from the cement-y clump at its base, the gravestone had been reset once or twice.
Today while visiting Oller again, I was pleased to see signs of recent caretaking, including at Effa’s grave: Her grave marker is upright once again.
Watch for the next “Wednesday’s child,” where I’ll share another indicator of the care that is being given to the old gravestones at Oller Cemetery.
