Urn and two willows

A while back, I wrote a post about the urn and willow motif that is so popular on 19th-century gravestones. The post included several examples from among some of my favorites. Here is another—one of my new favorites—from an enthusiastic carver with an attention to detail.

In Memory of
Hastings who
died Aug. 3
1844 Aged 30
years 2 mo. &
11 days.

By the way, I marked this gravesite (and others that day) with RestingSpot. Have you tried it yet?
