Wednesday’s child: Laura

It was a beautifully sunny day in Central Ohio. Walking through recently restored Big Darby Cemetery (look at those straight, white markers!), I came upon a small, bright white marker. A child’s marker.

LAURA
DAUGHTER OF
O. & M. WALKER
DIED
Feb. 28. 1875.
AGED
4 Ms. & 4 Ds.

Laura’s parents, Orlando Walker (b. 1849, d. 1916) and Missouri Walker (b. 1846, d. 1926), are buried nearby. The back of their double marker reveals their nicknames: Uncle Buck and Aunt Zue.

Just for fun, compare my photo to a pre-restoration photo on Find A Grave.
