Wednesday’s child: Lorain M. Andrews

The small tablet marker for Lorain M. Andrews (d. 1863) bears a nice carving of a broken rosebud, symbolic of a young life prematurely ended.

Son of
W. H. & M. N. Andrews
Sept. 19, 1863.
Æ. 1yr. 7mo 7d’s

The hot sun must have addled my brain when I stood at the grave because I failed to notice the epitaph hiding at the bottom. All I can read in the photo is Asleep in. The full epitaph may be Asleep in Jesus. Confirmation will have to wait for my next trip to Mill Creek Cemetery.
