Wednesday’s child: Pearl Oller

Recently, tidying up my cemetery photo folders, I stopped for a second look at the gravestone for Pearl Oller (b. 1888, d. 1894). I snapped this photo in May, on my first visit to Oller Cemetery.

The epitaph is touching in its simplicity.

Oller Cemetery is a quiet country cemetery overlooking the Scioto River. Buried there, Pearl Oller is surrounded by family.

  1. The graves of children are hard to work with a lot of times. Thanks for remembering this one!
