Tombstone Tuesday - At Rest Through Suffering


This tombstone is at Dravo Cemetery in Elizabeth, PA.  It is a wonderful, small, old historic cemetery located on the Allegheny Passage Trail.  We visited recently during a bike trip.  The only access to the cemetery is by the Allegheny Passage Trail.

This marker really struck me because of the inscription and age - only 11 years old.  Her name was Margaret Jane Newlin.  I found the inscription very sad for a child:  At Rest, Through Suffering.  There are many Newlin's buried in the cemetery.
