Headstone with Sheaf of Wheat
I was struck by the good condition this headstone was in after one hundred and forty-two years in the weather. The worksmanship of the sheaf of wheat is still finely etched and the epitaph perfectly clear. The entire cemetery was well kept but fenceless. The feel was more like that of a well-kept archaeological site than the usual manicured graveyard.
A sense of peacefulness reigned.
