Tombstone Tuesday: Tommy


 I found this old small tombstone at Prospect Cemetery at Brackenridge, PA.  It is located in the Public Graves Section.  I was there to visit the grave of my grandmother's sister (see my post Cemetery Trip to Visit Lizzy).

There are no dates no last name and it looks like there is a lamb on top of the stone, the head has been broken off.  There are few makers in this section.  Many of the stones that are there belong to children.  I am assuming this is a baby or small child because of the lamb.  This stone looked rather sad and lonely but also very peaceful and pretty in the Fall leaves.

  1. I am always intrigued by these stones that have little information. Some older cemeteries have a section for babies mainly because people in the town don't have a family plot but unfortunately do have little ones to lay to rest.
